SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Abortion clinics would be required to cremate fetal remains and women would have to get an ultrasound before the procedure under proposals that passed the Utah House this week.

Some objected that the new rules would erode access to abortion.

The ultrasound bill requiring a technician to display images and make the fetal heartbeat audible for each woman passed Thursday, the day after passage of a proposal mandating abortion providers cremate or bury fetal remains.

Both now go to the Senate. Lawmakers are also separately considering a complete abortion ban this year, with some exceptions, if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.

  1. Give it up UT. If a woman wants to abort a fetus it is her right! Maybe if your constituents would stop being so politically correct and stop adapting kids from other countries cause it looks so cool, maybe they can offer woman a chance to have the kid and then a nice mormon family (is there such as thing) can adopt the kid and everyone is just peachy.
