Assembly Approves Ultrasound Legislation
From Times Staff and Wire Reports
Purchase of ultrasound machines for home use would be banned under a bill passed Thursday by the state Assembly.
Lawmakers approved AB 2360 by Ted Lieu (D-Torrance), who drafted the bill after hearing that actor Tom Cruise had bought such a machine to see images of his daughter before her birth.
The bill must also pass the state Senate.
