    FLORIDA COMMITTEE PASSES ULTRASOUND BILL

    DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATOR CRITICAL TO BILL'S APPROVAL


    The Health Regulation Committee approved SB 2400, a bill that would allow women to see an ultrasound before considering abortion. Women would not be required to see the ultrasound and could opt out under this legislation. Opponents of the bill argue that it interfers with the right to abortion; a majority of women choose not to have an abortion after seeing their babies in the ultrasound picture. The narrow 4 to 3 vote would not have passed without the support of Democratic Senator Gary Siplin. We appreciate his vote on this bill. The Florida House passed similar legislation with the support of Democrat Representative Darren Soto.
