House Passes Amended Ultrasound Bill

It's up to the Senate after the House of Delegates voted 80-17 Friday to pass its amended version of the abortion-related ultrasound bill, The Associated Press reports.

As amended, "the woman would sign a form acknowledging the offer to view" an ultrasound image, the article said. "The measure also eliminates criminal penalties for doctors who violate the Women's Right to Know Act."
