Some pregnant women avert their eyes. Others shed tears or simply tune out the abortion doctors as they describe the fetus and offer them a chance to hear the heartbeat and view the image.
A federal judge in Austin said Monday that he couldn’t block a Texas law requiring women to have a sonogram before having an abortion any longer because an appeals court had ordered it to take effect.
The Center for Reproductive Rights says it will appeal a federal court opinion that says Texas may require a sonogram before an abortion pending resolution of a court challenge.
