(Neb.)-Neb. Abortion Ultrasound Bill Won't Exempt Victims

By: Nick Jakusz Posted at: 05/20/2009 02:41 PM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska lawmakers have rejected an exception from a proposed law requiring an ultrasound image of a fetus be displayed to women seeking abortion for victims of rape or incest.
     
The Legislature was on the second round of debate Wednesday on the measure to require those performing abortions to display ultrasound images of fetuses in a way that the women can easily view them.
     
Sen. Danielle Nantkes of Lincoln tried to exempt women who are victims of rape or incest from the requirement. But her amendment only got 22 votes. It needed 25 to advance.
