Rep. Hartgen On Abortion Bill

Tools

By Brittany Cooper

"The proponents felt it was an important action for the life of the unborn child and while most of us agreed with that, also there were people who felt that it was an invasion of privacy and a mandate the state should not impose on women," says Rep. Stephen Hartgen, a Republican legislator from District 23.

Rep. Hartgen weighed in on the recent decision to hold the abortion bill. The bill required women to get an ultrasound before they have an abortion.

He believes the bill will remain dead for rest of the session.
