Florida House passes host
of new abortion restrictions

After four hours of emotionally fraught debate, the Florida House on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a range of new restrictions on abortions that would restrict health-insurance coverage of the procedure, ban most abortions after a fetus is "viable" and require women seeking an abortion to first review an ultrasound in hopes that they would choose to reverse their decision after seeing the images.

"It doesn't matter whether that baby drives a truck or flips burgers at McDonald's or takes Rep. [Jason] Brodeur's seat over there — it's all going to be worth it," said Rep. Paige Kreegel, R-Punta Gorda, a physician.

The focus of the day's debate was the so-called "ultrasound" bill, passed last year but vetoed by then-Gov. Charlie Crist. Lawmakers set aside 100 minutes for arguments, which featured emotional outbursts — and personal stories — from members of both parties.

Rep. James Grant, R-Tampa, revealed that his parents were told that he was going to be born severely disabled, and he said they decided to go through with the pregnancy because "they believed in life." There was no reason, he said, for women not to understand the status of the fetus when they seek an abortion.

"What are we scared of?" he asked. "Are we scared of women discovering there is a heartbeat?"

The measure, HB 1127, requires that women who seek to terminate a pregnancy first receive an ultrasound, though they could decline in writing to view it. Women who are victims of sexual abuse or have a medical reason can opt out of the exam, but they must provide a copy of a restraining order, police report, medical record or other court documentation to do so.

Abortion-rights advocates argue that many women who are sexually assaulted do not report it, meaning they would lack documentation. According to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network, 60 percent of sexual assaults go unreported.

Rep. Scott Randolph, D-Orlando, again told of the emotions he and his wife experienced at viewing an ultrasound of her fetus that she subsequently miscarried, said the bill actually gave women no choice but to view an ultrasound. For women seeking an abortion related to a sexual assault, the situation was truly unfair, he said.

"The situation is a lot of women are in that situation," he said. "Now we're going to mandate that when that woman comes in, unless she's gone to the police and filed a police report, she's going to have to undergo a procedure that's invasive and possibly traumatic for her."

The final vote was 81-37, with Rep. Daphne Campbell of Miami the only Democrat to vote for it. She implored members to "do the right thing and follow Bible principles."

Campbell's vote on the ultrasound bill — and in favor of several others — enraged Randolph, who gained national attention earlier this session after a verbal scuffle with House Speaker Dean Cannon over his use of the word "uterus" on the House floor.

Campbell said that Randolph flung some papers on her desk and threw her pen in the trash, while blasting her for siding with Republican House members.

"He did throw things at me because I spoke the Gospel," said Campbell, a freshman who was born in Haiti and is a registered nurse.



Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels to Sign Bill Defunding Planned Parenthood


Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said Friday he will sign restrictive abortion legislation, making Indiana the first state to cut off all government funding for Planned Parenthood and boosting Daniels' credentials among social conservatives as he considers whether to run for president.

Daniels said he supported the abortion restrictions from the outset and that the provision added to defund abortion providers did not change his mind. He said women's health, family planning and other services will remain available.

"The principle involved commands the support of an overwhelming majority of Hoosiers," Daniels said in a statement announcing his intention to sign the bill when it arrives on his desk in about a week.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana said in a statement it would file an injunction to "try to halt this alarming erosion of public health policy in our state."

Organization president Betty Cockrum said Daniels' decision to sign the bill was unconscionable and unspeakable.

"We will now suffer the consequences of lawmakers who have no regard for fact-based decision making and sound public health policy," she said.

The bill puts Indiana at risk of losing $4 million a year in federal family planning grants likely to be cut off because of the legislation. Daniels, known as a fiscal hawk, did not address the loss in his statement.

The bill wasn't part of Daniels' agenda and he did not publicly advocate for the Planned Parenthood provision, but signing it might help his chances of winning the GOP nomination. Daniels opposes abortion rights, but his call for a Republican "truce" on social issues has drawn the ire of the social conservatives.

Bill sponsor state Rep. Eric Turner, R-Cicero, said social conservatives will be happy with Daniels' decision








From a Saddened Father


....To our Nation’s Posterity


...A warning


“ In the Preamble to the Constitution given to you by us,
your Founding Fathers, our purpose was to secure your Perpetuity,, who were then yet to be born,
our Posterity....

Your Supreme Court has erred, as they
have allowed you to condone, through some twisted logic,
the mass slaughter of your progeny, at the very dawn of
their existence replace them with illegal immigrants.

We, your Forefathers, did not risk our fortunes and our
security to enable your sacrifice of innocent blood. That
was not our intent.

The intentional extermination of a nation’s Posterity is not a Right.”

-George Washington

Sorry to hear that Sandra, you've been thru a lot. I thank God I have my 24 year old son and my 7 year old daughter. God is good, I do know that.
Comment by Sandra on April 30, 2011 at 9:48pm
So very true Clay.. I am so sorry your child passed away. I had an adult son pass just three years ago, two years after I lost my husband. So, I feel your pain and it is sad your son never had a chance at life.  Prayers and hugs to you.

The fact that our goverment doesn't protect the life of the unborn is absolutely a disgrace to our nation.

If a 5 year old's father goes in a bank and robs it, we dont punish the child. The holocaust supportes always bring up rape and incest...but what about the other 96% of abortions.  We're in a sad state. I know from first-hand experience that that child is a life.  When I held my little five month-term baby boy in my hands a couple of years ago, that had died..I promise you, it's a child.
