District 69 Representative On Texas Abortion Bill

A controversial bill is moving through the Texas Legislature.
The bill would require doctors to provide sonograms for women who choose to have an abortion.
Governor Rick Perry declared an "Emergency Issue of Efforts", requiring women considering an abortion to first have a sonogram.
The bill would also require the doctor to allow the pregnant woman to hear the baby's heartbeat.  
The woman would have the option of declining to see the sonogram or hearing the heartbeat.
 
District 69 State Representative Lanham Lyne told Newschannel 6, "I believe that the more information the better it is for the mother making a good decision and understanding maybe a little bit more that the child inside of her is more than just a mass of cells."
