DSHS Provides Guidance on Sonogram Law

DSHS is providing information and guidance about a Texas law passed last session requiring doctors to provide sonograms before abortions. The law applies to abortions performed Oct. 1, 2011, or later. A court order that prevented DSHS from enforcing certain parts of the law has been lifted. DSHS is communicating with doctors, abortion facilities and women who may have questions about the law’s requirements and how they will be enforced.
