Louisiana Senate passes bill that would triple waiting time for abortions


The Louisiana State Senate on Tuesday voted on a bill that would triple the waiting time for women seeking abortions, bringing the policy one step closer to law.

Sponsored by Rep. Frank Hoffmann, a Republican, HB 386 requires that women wait 72 hours between a state-mandated counseling session ahead of an abortion and the scheduled procedure. Current law says women must wait 24 hours.

The bill also requires a doctor perform an ultrasound so the woman may see the fetus on through images on the screen and hear the heartbeat.?
