No Restrictions For Ultrasound Demo

An anti-abortion group planning a live ultrasound exhibition in a Senate hearing room today can't restrict attendance to only those it wants in the room, the Associated Press reports. The event in room WW53 on the state Capitol's lower level is part of efforts by anti-abortion advocates to require women seeking an abortion to undergo an ultrasound examination. Right to Life of Idaho, the exhibition's promoter, indicated in an e-mail it would limit attendees to lawmakers, their families, Capitol staff and accredited media. However, the AP reports that Capitol officials said Tuesday the building's meeting rooms are open to the public/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here.
