A Texas Senate committee has advanced a “compromise” bill which requires a woman seeking an abortion to be given a sonogram, listen to the fetal heartbeat, and listen to a detailed description of a fetus. (Texas’ Senate and House had both passed versions of the bill before, but the House version was more strict and scary. This latest bill in the Senate is a “compromise” because it exempts women who have been victims of rape or incest.) Gov.
