TUCSON, Ariz. -- The state senate and house health committees, considering new bills restricting abortion.

One bill would ban abortions sought because of the race or sex of the fetus, or of the parent.

Another bill would keep anyone from using public money to pay for abortions directly or indirectly through insurance coverage.

That same bill also would require doctors to offer women the opportunity to view an ultrasound image before an abortion.
