Pro-Life supporters back two bills

There was a crowded hearing room on Friday before the Health and Human Services Committee. 

Two bills, both backed by pro-life supporters, were discussed.

The first bill, the Freedom of Conscience Act, would protect health care providers and hospitals should they refuse to provide treatment because of religious or moral beliefs.

Supporters said the current law doesn't do enough to protect doctors, while opponents said it would allow providers to refuse care without referring them to another doctor.

The second bill would require the state to provide more information about abortions and its risks. It also requires four-dimensional ultrasound images of human fetuses to be posted on the state web site.

Both bills will have to make it out of committee before they can be debated on the legislative floor.
