Anti-Abortion Group Plans Capitol Ultrasound

Anti-abortion activists plan a live ultrasound exhibition in the Idaho Capitol, part of their efforts to convince lawmakers to require a sonogram be done on women before an abortion.

Republican Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll of Cottonwood announced the exhibition in the Capitol’s West Wing 53 on Wednesday at noon.

Nuxoll said this is the first time such an ultrasound exhibition has been offered in a state Capitol building.

She says senators, their families, Capitol staff and media will be allowed inside.

The bill to force Idaho women to undergo an ultrasound before getting an abortion passed the Senate on Monday, 23-12.

It’s been among the 2012 Legislature most-contested issues.

Wednesday’s planned exhibition – on three women, in all three trimesters of pregnancy – will likely be hotly debated, as well.
