Last week, we reported that the life-saving ultrasound bill, which requires that an ultrasound be performed on a woman considering abortion and that the woman is offered an opportunity to view the ultrasound image and hear her baby’s heartbeat, could pass through the Senate. However, the vote was postponed to this week. We are at a crucial stage with the ultrasound bill, which supports a woman’s right to view an ultrasound and ensures women are given vital information about a life and death decision. The possible deciding vote is considered to be that of Sen. Kel Seliger (R-Amarillo), who voted “present, not voting” on the ultrasound bill the last time it was in the Senate! That would probably kill the bill.
