MADISON – Governor Scott Walker of Wisconsin signed a bill into law on Friday that requires all abortionists in the state to both show women ultrasound images of their unborn children and have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.
The 11-page bill, officially titled 2013 Senate Bill 206 (SB206), has been heralded as a strong piece of pro-life legislation, because ultrasound viewings often cause women to have second thoughts about abortion procedures. However, SB206 also requires doctors to carefully describe the unborn children to their mothers, so they understand how developed the babies are in the womb.
“[T]he physician who is to perform or induce the abortion,” the bill states, “… [must] provide a simultaneous oral explanation during the ultrasound including the number of unborn children and presence and location of the unborn child; display the ultrasound images so that the pregnant woman may view them; provide a medical description of the ultrasound images including the dimensions of the unborn child and a description of any viewable external features and internal organs of the unborn child; and provide a means for the pregnant woman to visualize any fetal heartbeat.” Click here to continue reading.
