"Idaho GOP to Stage Live Ultrasound Demonstration At Statehouse"

A live ultrasound demonstration is scheduled to take place in the Idaho state Capitol on Wednesday afternoon, just two days after the state Senate’s 23-12 passage of pre-abortion ultrasound bill SB 1387. “Voices from the Womb,” which is being sponsored by local crises pregnancy center Stanton Health Care, will feature “three Stanton clients, one in each trimester of pregnancy.” Although the demo is being touted by Republican Sen. Sheryl Nuxoll as the first of it’s kind, the event will likely mirror a similar exhibition that was staged in Ohio’s Statehouse last year in support of the state’s own controversial “heartbeat bill.” — Fatima Najiy
