Texas Right to Life Legislative Director tweets live from Texas Sonogram Hearing in New Orleans

Legislative Director John Seago reported live this morning via Twitter from the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals hearing regarding the Texas Sonogram Law.  The law was challenged by The Center for Reproductive Rights, and has been blocked from going into effect by pro-abortion Judge Sam Sparks.

Texas Right to Life has been closely monitoring the Sonogram Law challenge, and applauds the steps Texas Attorney General Gregg Abbott and other Pro-Life Texans are taking to defend and uphold the law.

Plaintiffs try 2 argue again that this is "radical" informed consent & judges still asking for a clear line it crosses 2 make it "radical."

Plaintiffs: This requires ideologically motivated speech. / Justice Jones: What's ideological about a sonogram image & medical description?

Plaintiffs up & judges pushing back hard on the claim that this law is "radical" informed consent & goes outside Casey precedent.
