Louisiana Senate voted to increase abortion sonogram requirements
Kyle Webster at 12:00 AM ET

On April 24, 2012, the Louisiana Senate passed legislation to increase abortion sonogram requirements. The bill was signed by Governor Bobby Jindal in June 2012. This was just one bill in the ongoing debate over abortion laws over the past four decades. More recently, on April 10, 2013, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley signed into law a bill strengthening restrictions on abortion clinics in the state. On April 13, 2013, the North Dakota House passed a measure called the "fetal pain bill," outlawing all abortions after 20 weeks.
