Louisiana gets ultrasounds before abortions

Bill: SB708 (Act No.685) (text)

Sponsored by Senator Sharon Broome, and signed into law by Gov. Bobby Jindal, HB708 (the Hear the Heartbeat Act) requires that the fetal heartbeat be made audible to, and ultrasound images be displayed for review by, a pregnant woman at least 24 hours prior to an abortion. Abortion facilities must also place the ultrasound screen in view of the woman.
