Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Injunction of Sonogram Law

Tuesday, August 30, 2011  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement on U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks' injunction against Texas' recently-passed sonogram legislation:

"Every life lost to abortion is a tragedy and today's ruling is a great disappointment to all Texans who stand in defense of life. This important sonogram legislation ensures that every Texas woman seeking an abortion has all the facts about the life she is carrying, and understands the devastating impact of such a life-changing decision. I have full confidence in Attorney General Abbott's efforts to appeal this decision as he defends the laws enacted by the Texas Legislature."
