Current Amendment: 12 to Bill 474

Rep. Wetmore proposes the following amendment (LC-474.VR0662H):

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 2, by striking Section 44-41-630(B) and inserting:

(B) Except as provided in Section 44-41-650 or 44-41-660, no person shall perform, induce, or attempt to perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman before the determination is made pursuant to subsection (A) whether the unborn child the pregnant woman is carrying has a detectable heartbeat. It is not a violation of this subsection if the requirements contained in subsection (A) have been satisfied and the method used to test for the presence of a fetal heartbeat does not reveal a fetal heartbeat. A person who violates this subsection is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined one thousand dollars.
