Legislators hear testimony on bills about abortion rights

March 11, 2014

PROVIDENCE – Scores of advocates on both sides of the volatile abortion issue testified into the night Tuesday on a dozen different bills that sought to either restrict or liberalize the state’s abortion laws.

Three of the bills were sponsored by local lawmakers.

A measure sponsored by state Rep. Karen MacBeth (D-Dist. 52, Cumberland) would require a physician who is to perform an abortion to also perform an obstetric ultrasound on the pregnant woman and offer to show her the ultrasound images and a medical description of those images.
