AM: Ultrasound Bill Dead For 2012

Kerry Uhlenkott, of Right to Life of Idaho, at podium, speaks to a crowd of 150 supporters of a bill to require an ultrasound be performed on women seeking an abortion in Idaho Monday on the steps of the Ohio Capitol in Boise. The rally was aimed at convincing lawmakers to resurrect the bill, which was sidelined last week on concerns in the Idaho House that it was a government overreach into the private lives of women and their doctors. This morning, State Affairs Chairman Tom Loertscher declared the bill dead for the 2012 Idaho Legislature. Story here. (AP/Statesman photo: Darin Oswald)
