Ultrasound Bill Hearing Today
Today the Maryland Senate Finance Committee will hear testimony regarding SB 195. This legislation would require abortion providers in Anne Arundel County to offer an ultrasound, a print copy of the ultrasound image, and the opportunity to listen to a fetal heartbeat to any woman seeking an abortion. This legislation is nothing more then a thinly veiled attempt to dissuade women from choosing abortion. Today is crucial. Inform your legislators that you strongly oppose any legislation that would infringe on the doctor-patient relationship. Let's leave the medical decisions to doctors, not politicians. Contact your legislators today and urge them to oppose SB 195!
