Supreme Court Blocks Texas Neanderthal Sonogram Law
Quote :
Today the Supreme Court told Texas not to enforce an unbelievably primitive GOP-sponsored law that requires women to undergo an invasive vaginal procedure before they can have a legal abortion: Supreme Court Blocks Texas Abortion/Sonogram Law.
The U.S. Supreme Court said Thursday that Texas can’t enforce an abortion/sonogram law passed by the state legislature last summer while the measure is under appeal, the Texas Tribune reports.

On Wednesday, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to allow the law to go into effect while it was being appealed.

An Austin judge ruled that the parts of the law that required a doctor to display an ultrasound image, make the heartbeat audible and describe the fetus before terminating a pregnancy were unconstitutional.

I believe Indiana requires a sonogram, but doubt it's vaginal.
