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."
