Sen. Anitere Flores said there will be a measure filed this year requiring more women to first see and hear about ultrasound images before having an abortion. Flores told the video political blog Shark Tank that there will be several “pro life” bills filed for this coming session. “One of them is certainly going to be the bill requiring an ultrasound prior to a woman having an abortion,” said Flores, R-Miami. “If we can do that and it saves at least one baby’s life, I think it’s something that’s worth it.” Similar legislation passed both chambers last year but was vetoed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist. Women seeking abortions in the second or third trimester, already must get an ultrasound. Last year’s legislation would have also required it in the first trimester.
