Abortion debate heats up
It's one of those crushing disappointments and irritations in life when you're looking for objective information and instead you get stuck with a sermon.
It's especially irksome when you're in a moment of crisis.
Pro-life state legislators want to require doctors to offer women sonograms of their fetuses before proceeding with abortions. To that end, state Rep. James Mills, R-Gainesville, has taken the lead with what he's calling "The Woman's Right to Know Act."
One of the bill's most outspoken critics, Dionne Vann, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Georgia, says what the legislation does is needlessly badger pregnant women.
"This bill includes no exclusion for rape or incest victims or medical anomalies," Vann says. "The premise of the bill was to give women as much information as possible, but it doesn't do that."
