Anti-abortion bill to be taken up by House committee Tuesday

The sweeping new abortion restrictions will be considered Tuesday by a House committee.

The House Committee on Health and Human Services Committee is scheduled to take up the bill Tuesday at 10 am. in Room 544.

The Senate passed the omnibus anti-abortion bill on Wednesday, drawing large group of spectators, mainly women, who chanted "shame, shame, shame" when it passed.

The measure would require abortion clinics to meet standards similar to those for outpatient surgery clinics. It also requires doctors to be present when women take pills that induce abortions. Opponents said only one abortion clinic in the state could meet the new standards.
