Ultrasound is Better than Ultrasuck: Dr. Makes Case Against Abortion When Trying to Make Case Against Ultrasound Law
An Anonymous Doctor posted an article on a blog called Whatever: Still Running Against the Wind.
The title of the article was "Guest Post: A Doctor On Transvaginal Ultrasounds".
This anonymous doctor called for civil disobedience to protest doing ultrasounds before abortions as required by law in order to inform the woman that
The lies are neatly tied up in these two sentences:
"This past fall, doctors were required to start performing a transvaginal sonogram at least 24 hours ahead of an abortion, a shift they say has had frustrating consequences for clinics and patients."Read more »
The following is a press release from Texas Senator Dan Patrick:
AUSTIN, TX – This morning, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the injunction on the sonogram bill by District Judge Sam Sparks.
In a strongly worded order, the Fifth Circuit panel makes it clear that they found no constitutional flaws with the legislation and the injunction should be vacated. Even more significantly, the panel states that they will handle any further appeals related to the sonogram bill.
Texas Sonogram Bill is Ruled Constitutional - 5th Circuit Court of Appeals Upholds the Abortion Law & Removes Injunction
Major Victory for the State of Texas and for life!
Texas passed a law in the 2011 Legislative session that requires a sonogram to be performed for women who are contemplating killing their unborn baby. This would allow the woman to be fully informed about what she is doing and who is inside of her. Read more »
Lt. Governor David Dewhurst issued the following statement regarding the injunction of the Texas sonogram law by a federal judge:
"This ruling is a tragic setback for Texans who care deeply about the rights of the unborn and the legislators who worked in a bipartisan way to get this bill passed into law. I will work with Attorney General Abbott to appeal this ruling." Read more »
Contrary to what the main stream media would like you to believe, the 2011 Legislative Session was a huge success for the agenda of Texas Conservatives and Republicans. A strong Voter ID bill was passed and signed into law. The Texas Budget, unlike the Federal Budget, was balanced without raising taxes, dipping heavily into the rainy day fund, or excessively cutting major state programs. Funds to defend the Texas/Mexico border were increased. A sonogram bill was signed into law to protect life. And, Texas passed a major lawsuit reform bill in the form of "Loser Pays". Read more »
The following interview with Texas Representative Bill Callegari is one of a series of interviews conducted by VOCES Action and TexasGOPVote with members of the Hispanic Republican Conference in the 82nd session of the Texas Legislature. Representative Callegari represents House District 132, which includes west Harris County.
In my conversation with Mr. Callegari we spoke about his district, why he is part of the Hispanic Republican Conference, the closeness he has with Hispanic people and his own Latino background, his opinion about the immigration problem and the fact that he is a co author of the Sonogram Bill, HB15, that recently passed. He also mentioned another bill.
Rep. Kenneth Sheets on banning bath salts, supporting Sonogram bill and joining the Hispanic Republican Conference (VIDEO)
The following interview with Texas Representative Kenneth Sheets is one of a series of interviews conducted by VOCES Action and TexasGOPVote with members of the Hispanic Republican Conference in the 82nd session of the Texas Legislature. In 2010, Kenneth Sheets was elected to his first session in the Texas House of Representatives serving District 107, which includes East Dallas, the Lakewood area, the Highlands area, part of Garland, and part of Mesquite.
The first time I heard from Mr. Kenneth Sheets was back on July 22, 2012 after I debated Liberal Democrat Domingo Garcia on FOX News primetime on the immigration issue.
What is going on in the Texas House? I find it strange that even after their electoral beating, the Democrats in Texas refuse to listen to the voters who clearly wanted more conservative governance and continue to obstruct House debate on conservative issues, such as the Sonogram Bill (HB15) and Voter ID (SB14).
