Article Photos: Education battle tops Idaho news stories for 2012 8/15

In this March 14, 2012 photo, Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise, a sponsor of a bill that would require women seeking an abortion get an ultrasound first, is pictured at a Senate State Affairs Committee hearing at the Idaho Capitol in Boise. Winder's suggestion on the Senate floor that a doctor should ask a woman who says she was raped if the pregnancy could have been "caused by normal relations in a marriage" brought a rebuke from another legislator who said it's insensitive and suggests women may lie to get an abortion.
