CT lawmakers fight to protect women's health rights

The abortion issue was raised Monday at the state Capitol.



Seven Democratic women lawmakers hosted a news conference to introduce a package of five bills.



They say the bills are designed to keep Connecticut as a pro-choice state and protect a variety of women's health rights.



Four Republicans proposed legislation that would require an ultrasound procedure prior to terminating a pregnancy. 



Sunday marked the 44th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision to legalize abortion.
