Perry signs pre-abortion bill

NewsChannel 10

Texas - Governor Rick Perry has signed into law a requirement that doctors conduct a sonogram before performing an abortion.

The hotly debated legislation passed the Republican-controlled Texas House and Senate, despite numerous protests against it.

The law requires the doctor to conduct a sonogram, provide the woman a chance to see the image and hear the fetal heartbeat.

The doctor is required to explain to the woman what he sees, including the presence of internal organs or limbs.
