Bills on abortion to be considered Wednesday

Two Arizona legislative committees on Wednesday are scheduled to consider bills to improve new abortion restrictions.

One of two abortion bills on the House health committee’s agenda would ban abortions sought because of the race or sex of the fetus or the race of a parent. Another would bar use of any public money to pay for abortions either directly or indirectly through insurance coverage.

The Senate health committee is scheduled to consider the Senate version of the funding ban. The Senate committee’s agenda also includes a bill to require that abortion doctors offer women getting an abortion an opportunity beforehand to view ultrasound image of the fetus.
