House Bill 516 requires physicians to inform their patients where they can get a free ultrasound to see an image of the fetus and listen to a fetal heartbeat. This serves only one purpose: to funnel women into crisis pregnancy centers that are known for shaming women out of their abortion decisions. These centers may not have the appropriate medical trained staff on site and don’t always inform women of all their medical options for reproductive healthcare such as contraception use or where to access abortion care.
