Perry's Texas Sonogram Law Struck Down
Amanda Winkler, Christian Post
Texas cannot require doctors to show pregnant women a sonogram before they perform an abortion, a federal judge in Austin has ruled.
The Texas legislature passed a bill earlier this summer, signed by governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry (R), which would have also required the doctor to describe the fetus’ features to the woman and she would have had to listen to the heartbeat 24 hours before the scheduled abortion.
