The U.S. Supreme Court today refused to let Texas enforce its new abortion sonogram law while the measure is under appeal, following a similar ruling from a federal appeals court on Wednesday.

The abortion sonogram law, which forces women to have a sonogram and hear a description of the fetus before terminating a pregnancy, was deemed unconstitutional by an Austin district judge in August, who blocked several of its key provisions.

This assault on women was brought to you by the guy who mandated that every 12-year old be given Gardisil...who considered parents "inconsequential". The guy who stripped first responder funds before the fire season, who also stripped millions from education for our children. Why should it surprise anyone that this guy thinks he's god, that he can mandate this test to a woman who has agonized over the toughest decision she'll ever make. Forget thinking for yourself, perry will do it for you.
