Major changes are made to the Texas abortion bill

The Texas bill that would require doctors to conduct an ultrasound before performing an abortion has a major change.

Now the bill says a woman could refuse to view or discuss the findings.

When it was first introduced, the bill required the doctor to describe the fetus and its development, make the heartbeat audible, and give the woman the ultrasound images.

Those changes could make this the first major abortion-related bill to be passed in Texas since 2005.

That is when lawmakers required unmarried girls under 18 to have a parent's consent for an abortion.
