Tallahassee, FL (AP) - A Florida legislator says in an e-mail
that gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott has vowed to support a bill
outlawing almost any abortion.
That would have been a change from previous statements, but
Scott's campaign said Friday he hasn't re-evaluated his position.
The Ledger of Lakeland reported Rep. Charles Van Zant told
supporters in an e-mail endorsement of Scott the gubernatorial
candidate repeatedly promised to support a bill banning abortion
unless the pregnancy threatens the life of the woman.
However, a Scott spokesman said Friday he also believed the
procedure should still be available in cases of rape or incest.
Van Zant did not immediately returned messages left Thursday by
The Associated Press.
