Sonogram requirement for abortion moves forward  AUSTIN (AP)—Texas senators took a step closer Monday to requiring doctors to conduct a sonogram before performing an abortion, a measure that critics' say is designed to intimidate women.  The bill's sponsor, Houston Republican Sen. Dan Patrick, called the measure "one of the strongest in the nation."  The measure would require the doctor who plans to perform an abortion to carry out a sonogram at least 24 hours in advance, unless the woman lives more than 100 miles away from the closest abortion clinic. The bill also requires the doctor to give the woman the option to see the sonogram and hear the fetal heartbeat. The doctor is required to  describe what he or she sees on the sonogram, including any internal organs, arms or legs.  The only exemption to the explanation is if the woman is a victim or rape or incest, or if the fetus has fatal abnormalities.  The hill passed on a 21-10 vote, largely along party lines. Two Democrats voted in favor.  When another senator asked Patrick why all women were not given the option to decline to hear the description of the fetus, Patrick said he hoped women would choose not to have the abortion.  "We want to give that baby an option by giving the mother all of the information," Patrick said.
