Today, the Texas House of Representatives will hear HB 15, the sonogram bill filed by Rep. Sid Miller, which was passed out of committee last week. The bill requires that a doctor perform a sonogram on women seeking an abortion and give the women a chance to hear the baby’s heartbeat.
Liberty Institute strongly supports passing legislation in the State of Texas that would require doctors to provide women with all the medically-relevant information they need before having an abortion, much like anyone receiving any other medical treatment. The bill could save thousands of lives if it is anywhere near as effective as sonograms have been in other parts of the country.
Please call your Representative today to ask him or her to vote FOR HB 15 on the House floor! You can keep up-to-date on this blog as we will be blogging live from the capitol.
Also, last week we had the opportunity to film some of the brave testimony of several women after they spoke to the House Committee in favor of Sonogram legislation. Please share these videos wherever you can as it is vitally important to get their heart felt messages heard.
