SB 920 would have amended Virginia’s informed consent law (Va. Code § 18.2-76) to remove the specific time frame for performance of a pre-abortion ultrasound. Current law requires the ultrasound take place at least 24 hours prior to the abortion or at least two hours prior if the woman lives at least 100 miles from the facility where the abortion is to be performed. SB 920 would simply require that the ultrasound take place before the abortion.

STATUS

Failed to report (defeated) in Education and Health Committee.
