Abortion bills near final votes


MONTGOMERY — A bill banning abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected could pass before the Alabama Legislature wraps up its session, along with three other bills regulating abortions.

The Senate Health Committee approved three abortion-related bills Tuesday, including the fetal heartbeat bill. One bill would set stricter standards for girls under 18 getting abortions. Another would require women seeking an abortion because of lethal fetal anomalies to be advised of the availability of perinatal hospice services.
