Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that amends existing law with regards to pre-abortion notification requirements.

Highlights:
-Requires a physician who will use ultrasound equipment in association with an abortion to offer at least 30 minutes before an abortion to let the woman seeking an abortion view the ultrasound and receive a physical picture of the ultrasound of her fetus at no additional expense (Sec. 1). -Requires a physician who will use heart monitor equipment in association with an abortion to offer at least 30 minutes before an abortion to let the woman seeking an abortion listen to the heartbeat of her fetus at no additional expense (Sec. 1). -Requires written certification featuring the woman's signed acceptance or rejection of the aforementioned offers (Sec. 1). -Requires a clearly visible sign with the following text to be posted at any facility or clinic where abortions are performed (except for facilities or clinics that only perform abortions to prevent the death of a pregnant woman): "Notice: It is against the law for anyone, regardless of their relationship to you, to force you to have an abortion. By law, we cannot perform an abortion on you unless we have your freely given and voluntary consent. It is against the law to perform an abortion on you against your will. You have the right to contact any local or state law enforcement agency to receive protection from any actual or threatened physical abuse or violence. You have the right to change your mind at any time prior to the actual abortion and request that the abortion procedure cease." (Sec. 1). -This is a substitute bill by the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs.
Note:

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE BILL, MEANING THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL BILL HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.
