NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Republican-led Tennessee House has passed a bill that would require doctors to offer women who are getting abortions a look at an ultrasound, if one was performed beforehand. The House voted 74-20 Monday on the bill by Republican Rep. Micah Van Huss of Jonesborough. If a woman decides to see the ultrasound, the bill would require the medical professional to tell her whether a fetal heartbeat was detected.
