    Patients often unhappy with new Texas sonogram law, abortion providers say


    Women seeking abortions at Whole Woman's Health in south Fort Worth often arrive upset or angry about Texas' new sonogram law, which began being fully enforced three weeks ago, a health center official says.

    Some are unhappy about the requirement that a physician must describe the fetus during a sonogram. But it's the hardship of having to schedule two appointments -- one for the sonogram and another for the surgery at least 24 hours later -- that draws the most consistent ire.

    For many women, that means unnecessarily missing two days of work, paying for two days of child care or arranging extra transportation. Those challenges are common at the Fort Worth center because it serves some rural clients who must travel farther, said Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Woman's Health.

    "What we have noticed primarily is absolute outrage that they have to come twice," Hagstrom Miller said. "Many of our clients are already mothers; they know what is on a sonogram. They don't see it and say 'Oh my gosh, I'm pregnant' and change their minds."

    This will translate into Democratic votes in November.

    Because of course two days off work plus bus fare is sooooo much more important than a human life, right liberals? Right death-mongers?

    I highly doubt those supporting abortion were planning to vote for a pro life Republican to begin with.

    oh well

    sadly for the Constitutional hypocrites, states can regulate Constitutional rights. and there's fucking nothing you can do about it now.

    ex;

    libs support vast amounts of gun laws at all levels of government. all of these laws are unconstitutional.

    libs support anti-freedom of speech laws, with the pretty bow of "Hate Speech" on it.

    so when reps say we can regulate abortions, ya only have yourselves to blame for them learning that Two can play the regulation game.

    Republican women get abortions. I know you don't want to believe it, but it's true.

    There is going to be blowback from this in the next election.

    I am pro-life. I don't have much sympathy for someone complaining about having to take two days off to end a life which will have all of her days ended.

    However, I believe this sonogram requirement is nothing but vindictiveness. It's a dick move intended to embarrass and humiliate the mother. This is not how to win their hearts and minds.

    This is not treating humans with dignity. This is not loving the sinner.

    This is not Christian compassion.
