CHEYENNE — The Wyoming House has softened a bill that would require doctors to inform women seeking an abortion that they could view an ultrasound image of their fetus before the procedure.

The House on Tuesday amended the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Bob Brechtel of Casper. The amendments removed a requirement that a woman would have to wait 24 hours before she could receive an abortion.

In addition, the House inserted new language to require doctors to inform women about birth control options and about the risks of pregnancy and childbirth.

Brechtel opposed the amendments. He said he and other lawmakers are considering proposing other amendments to restore the bill to its original form when the House considers it for the third time on Wednesday.
