CO Senate Looks To Add Wait Time For Abortions

The Colorado Senate will hold one more vote on a measure that would force women seeking abortions and their doctors to wait 24 hours. Northern Colorado State Senators Vicki Marble and Kevin Lundberg’s bill passed the first vote in the Senate earlier this week. Marble and Lundberg’s bill would require doctors to go over abortion risks, review alternative options and offer women opportunities to see ultrasound images. A doctor not following those rules would face penalties under the new law. However, while the bill is expected to pass the Senate on the next vote, it will most likely be voted down in the Democrat-controlled House.
