Texas House to Vote on 'Sonogram Bill'

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(AUSTIN) -- The Texas House of Representatives will vote Wednesday on the so-called "sonogram bill," which requires women having abortions to see the ultrasound image, hear the baby's heartbeat, and wait 24 hours.

The bill has polarized legislators, with mostly Democrats providing dissent and a largely Republican support. The measure has been described as a guilt procedure by critics.

If the bill is passed in the house, then it will be fused with a similar proposal passed by the Senate in February. Texas Gov. Perry has expressed his support of the bill.
