As recently reported in the Austin American Statesman, a class action lawsuit has been filed in U.S. District Court in Austin, against the newly passed sonogram law in Texas. The oppenents of the law are claiming that the law improperly forces doctolrs to deliver government-mandates speech by requiring them to verbally describe fetal features revealed by the sonogram.
Under the controversial law, Texas Governor Rick Perry signed, a woman is not able to decline to hear the sonogram description.
Opponents of the law also state the law will force doctors to violate medical ethics by requiring them to disregard the wishes of patients.
