WaPo story here, which notes:
…In a flurry of votes, the [Virginia] House gave preliminary approved to a bill that would require doctors to give women the option of viewing an ultrasound before an abortion. It also agreed to require doctors to give women information about how anesthesia can be provided to a fetus during the procedure.
Two bills that would make it a crime to force a miscarriage received preliminary approval in the House. Under one, a person other than the mother could be charged with involuntary manslaughter for causing a miscarriage. Under the other, a woman who causes her own miscarriage could be charged with a felony and face up to 10 years in prison. The legislation would not outlaw the morning-after pill.
Final votes on the abortion bills are scheduled for today. If approved, the bills go to the Senate, which has been hesitant in recent years to address abortion-related issues. Even so, abortion rights supporters say they worry that Virginia is getting closer to enacting a ban on abortion. …
