A bill that would impose a 48-hour waiting period on abortions was approved by a House committee on Tuesday.

HB 140 was approved by a 6-3 vote of the House Judiciary Committee after lengthy public discussion.

The bill would require doctors to wait to perform an abortion for 48 hours after telling women seeking the procedure that they could see an ultrasound of the fetus and hear a recording of the heartbeat, if audible.

The bill now heads to the House floor for a discussion by the full body.
