    Meh. These laws are really silly. The majority of abortions happen in the first 9 weeks. There's really not much to see or hear in that time. They may change the minds of the minority of women who are a bit further along, but I'm guessing not enough to even put a dent in abortion statistics.

    A new Texas law requires that women seeking an abortion to see a sonogram of the fetus, as well are asked to hear the heartbeat of the fetus.

    Words cannot describe how disappointed I am.
    I support any baby-step towards severely restricting or banning abortion. I am glad Texas passed this.If this makes a mother change her mind about killing her baby then good.

    or just a petty attempt at causing more emotional pain for women.

    How is it emotional pain for someone to see a picture of something they see as nothing more than a clump of cells instead of as a human? If someone showed me a picture of a actual clump of cells I wouldn't be upset.This emotional pain over a being shown a grainy picture of a clump of cells sounds like nothing more than fear mongering by the pro-abortion crowd.

    Why would there be any emotional pain for a woman during an abortion? It's just a medical procedure....like removing an appendix. Nothing to be emotional about there.

    Only 52% occur before 9 weeks.Thats 712400 out of the 1.37 million abortions that occur each year. There is still 657600 abortions a year that happen after 9 weeks. So it is not some miniscule number of women that have abortions after the first 9 weeks.
