Despite some procedural snags earlier this week, the Texas House passed their version of the bill Thursday night. The bill would require women to get a sonogram at least 24 hours before they can have an abortion. The House version of the bill also requires that doctors play the fetal heartbeat, and give the woman a detailed description of the fetus, whether she wants it or not.
Supporters say the bill better informs women, while opponents say it sets up a barrier to abortion. Now, the House bill must be reconciled with the Senate version before a final vote.
