Dyson introduces abortion consent bill

Posted: Thursday, January 23, 2003

JUNEAU (AP) -- Women would have to certify that they've been informed of the risks of abortion before having the procedure under a bill introduced by state Sen. Fred Dyson, R-Eagle River.

The measure would require the state to prepare a pamphlet describing risks of abortion as well as risks of giving birth and describing fetal development, including photographs.

The pamphlet would also include information on agencies that assist pregnant women, including adoption agencies.

The bill has been referred to the Health Education and Social Services, Judiciary and Finance Committees. No hearings have been scheduled yet.

The measure is Senate Bill 30.
