David Ripley: Planned Parenthood Fights Ultrasound Bill

March 15th, 2012 by Halli

Idaho Chooses Life

The hearing room was filled with an odd combination of Planned Parenthood operatives and Occupy Boise activists, working together to intimidate members of the Senate into killing SB 1387. Despite very heated rhetoric and boorish behavior by opponents, the State Affairs Committee approved the Ultrasound bill on a 7-2 vote.

Only Democrats Edgar Malepeai and Michelle Stennett voted against the bill.

SB 1387 would require an ultrasound prior to performance of an abortion. It would also require that the woman sign a form indicating that she had been given an opportunity to view the image.

One of the more powerful moments of the hearing came at the end. A doctor had argued during testimony that the committee should set aside its “misguided” concern for the unborn and focus on the discomfort women might experience in undergoing an ultrasound. Sen. Brent Hill moved the bill, saying that he was doing so precisely because of his concern for preborn children.

There is no doubt that this legislation, if enacted, will save babies. It will also ensure that many women will be saved from a lifetime of regret because they will gain access to critical information.

The bill now goes to the full Senate for consideration.
