Information:               We at TBK have debated this issue when this bill came up a few years back. We are in principle against government mandates and interference in the market and people’s medical decisions. However, we at TBK are adamantly pro-life and while we do not agree with the abortion laws we do believe every effort should be made to save a baby’s life and if the viewing of an ultrasound will do that, then we support it.
