MT Senate Approves Requirements For Abortion Providers
HELENA, Mont. (AP) —The Montana Senate has approved a measure that would require providers to ask women seeking abortions if they want to view ultrasounds and listen to the fetuses’ heartbeats. The bill passed the Senate 31-19 on Tuesday. It now goes to the House for consideration.
The measure would fine an abortion provider $1,000 for not following the guidelines. Additionally, it would require a patient to sign a form certifying that the provider made the offer.
