In early January, a judge ruled that Texas’ sonogram law was allowed to continute. The law would require women to see a sonogram before they have an abortion.
Perry had this to say about the ruling.
"Today’s ruling is a victory for all who stand in defense of life," Perry said. "Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy, and this important sonogram legislation ensures that every Texas woman seeking an abortion has all the facts about the life she is carrying, and understands the devastating impact of such a life-ending decision."
But according to KENS5 out of San Antonio, abortion providers are impacted greatly. They state that a one-day procedure is being drawn out to 2-3 days. And physicians are struggling to meet schedules and make appointments. Clients are blaming them for waiting.
“We’re asked, ‘Why are you doing this to me? Why are you making me wait? I have to go to work; I could lose my job,’” said Dorothy Reno, director of clinics for Planned Parenthood of the Texas Capital Region. “These are things we hear from patients every day.”
