Between a conservative Legislature and a more conservative governor, there’s a concentrated effort this year to tighten Florida’s abortion laws.http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/03/22/2129034/abortion-bills-pile-up-in-florida.html
From reviving a measure to require a woman to receive an ultrasound before undergoing an abortion to a blanket ban that would pose a legal challenge to Roe v. Wade, at least 18 bills are filed.
“It’s an unprecedented year,” said Stephanie Kunkel, executive director of the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates.
The number puts Florida among the top five states in the country for abortion bills, Kunkel said. West Virginia is first with more than 30.
Where did these people get the idea that the Florida public wants them to spend their time debating 18 separate abortion restriction measures?
Jobs, foreclosures and spending - - that's the public's agenda.
