Indiana Advances Bill Requiring 2 Transvaginal Ultrasounds Before & After Abortion, Then Changes It
- Indiana’s state Senate advanced a bill requiring a woman to get two transvaginal ultrasounds before taking the RU-486 abortion pill, one before and one afterwards. Fortunately, today they dropped that language, saying doctors should perform “appropriate testing” on women two weeks after the abortion pill is taken. Which could mean urine testing … or a transvaginal ultrasound. [Slate, San Francisco Gate]
