COLUMBUS, Ohio - Women seeking an abortion in Ohio would have to wait longer to undergo the procedure and listen to their doctors describe all of the fetus' "relevant features" under a measure being considered by state lawmakers.
The Republican-led Legislature's most recent attempt at curbing abortions would also require doctors to tell women that the procedure increases the risk of breast cancer and may cause pain to the fetus.
The bill will be presented Wednesday at a House committee hearing.
The measure would also increase the time women must wait to undergo an abortion from 24 to 48 hours.
Supporters say the bill is meant to help women be better informed about the consequences of the procedure.
Critics say some of the information doctors will be forced to tell patients is bogus.
