Abortion Veto

“What it would have done is insert politics and politicians into the exam room, in-between women and their doctors, exactly where they don’t belong.

Today they got kicked out of that exam room and that’s a good thing,” said Filer.

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum wrote a letter to the governor asking him to sign the legislation.

His spokeswoman, Sandi Copes, says McCollum likes a provision in the bill banning taxpayer dollars from being spent on abortion as well as language to overthrow part of the new federal health care regulations.

“There was a provision in there that would have effected whether or not Congress could mandate individual coverage of health insurance and it would have enabled the Attorney General to further represent individuals in court,“ said Copes.

The veto will allow the state GOP to run ads against Crist in his race for US Senate, questioning the governor’s previous statements that he is pro-life.

    The people pushing this bill are not for right to life. They are lobbyist working for the Medical Industry. It is not about saving the unborn. It is about making a mandate that will make physicians practices more profitable. If you are for right to life you should not be for people trying to make a law so they can profit off of abortion, because that is essentially what they are doing.
