Senate Moves To Undo Anti-Abortion Laws

A State Senate panel has approved two abortion rights bills at the Capitol. That in an effort to undo some of the anti-abortion laws passed when Repubilcans controlled the General Assembly. One bill would repeal the requirement that women seeking an abortion must first have an ultrasound. The other would allow insurance plansĀ to provide coverage for abortions. Supporters of the measures say the recent Democratic victories in statewide contests show that the public does not support the abortion restrictions passed by Republicans in recent years. Democrats won control of the State Senate last month. But Republicans stillĀ have a large majority in the House, which is highly unlikely to support the bills.
