What would Del. Kathy Tran and Sen. Jennifer McClellan’s bills really do?

Tran-McClellan bills would eliminate the following requirements:

  1. That an ultrasound be performed 24 hours before an abortion

  2. That a mother be properly informed before giving written consent

  3. 24 hour waiting period

  4. That 2nd trimester abortions be performed in a hospital

  5. Civil penalties for violations of abortion laws

  6. That two additional doctors certify the need for a 3rd trimester abortion and the “substantially and irremediable” finding
