Re-election anxieties stall ultrasound bill in Idaho

After an extraordinary closed-door caucus late Wednesday, Idaho House GOP leaders canceled Thursday’s 7:45 a.m. hearing on Senate Bill 1387. The bill, which passed the Senate 23-12 Monday, mandates that women seeking abortions have an ultrasound to determine whether or not there is a fetal heartbeat, and, if so, the heart rate. Also, gestational age must be determined by a physician before an abortion.
