An Oklahoma Legislator, Kevin Calvey, is seeking legislation that would require abortion clinics to offer ultrasound scans to women seeking an abortion. The proposed “Unborn Child Untrsound Imaging Act” would require abortion clinics to provide women with the opportunity to view an ultrasound 24 hours before an abortion. Opponents charge that if the bill became law in Oklahoma, it would add extra expense and one more barrier to access for women seeking abortion services. Source: NewsOK.com.
