YES! Lawsuit Filed Against Sid Miller & Rick Perry's Sonogram/Abortion Law

From Center for Reproductive Rights website.

“This law barges in on the doctor-patient relationship” said Nancy Northup, president of the Center for Reproductive Rights. “When you go to the doctor, you expect to be given information that is relevant to your particular medical decisions and circumstances, not to be held hostage and subjected to an anti-choice agenda.”

The Center argues that the ultrasound requirements violate the First Amendment rights of both the doctor and the patient by forcing physicians to deliver politically-motivated communications to women, regardless of their wishes.  The Center also argues that the law discriminates against women by subjecting them to paternalistic “protections” not imposed on men.

“This law is patronizing to women in Texas. It is based on outdated stereotypes that women are too immature or too incompetent to make important decisions,” said Northup. “It’s as if the politician has charged into the doctor’s office and told the woman, ‘Honey, you just don’t understand what you are doing.  Let me explain it to you and tell you what to do.’”

In addition, the Center argues that the ultrasound requirements violate basic principles of medical ethics and serve no medical purpose.

Thank you!  It's only too bad that this will take several years, at best, to wind through the courts and reverse what extremist Sid Miller and Rick Perry have wrought.

P.S. Notice any women in this picture?
