The following is from Florida Right to Life Organization:
“THE MOST IMPORTANT PRO-LIFE, PRO-WOMEN LEGISLATION IN FLORIDA HISTORY WAS VETOED BY GOV. CRIST ON JUNE 11, 2010!
HB 1143 was a pro-life and a pro-choice bill. It required that an abortionist give an ultrasound test before an abortion. 82% of the abortion clinics in Florida already do, but they do not all give the woman the option to see or discuss the ultrasound.
This bill did not force the woman to look at the ultrasound or force her to discuss it. But it did require the abortionist to give her the option to see the pictures and to ask questions.
This is a pro-choice bill because it gives woman the opportunity to have as much information as possible before making a choice and isn’t that what pro-choice is all about.
Of course the abortionists didn’t want this to happen because some women would change their mind about having an abortion and so this bill would hurt their business.
The abortionists and pro-aborts used the pro-life vs. pro-choice debate for their greed.
Within a couple of days of passage of the bill more than a thousand calls hit the Governor’s office convincing him that this bill is against woman! They had him believing that the bill forces the woman to view the ultrasound, that the woman would receive a “lecture” and so the bill is “mean-spirited” to put a woman through so much when she is in the turmoil of making such an emotional decision.
If they were really pro-woman they would have agreed that it is time for the other 18% of abortion providers in Florida do an ultrasound before an abortion and it is only for the welfare of the woman that she is allowed to see it and ask questions about it.
All surgical procedures have tests for the safety of the patient and it is a woman’s right to have any test to insure her safety for all surgeries including abortion.
Please call Governor Crist and tell him that you are really disappointed in him for not signing BG 1143 into law. Tell him that this was a Pro-Woman bill and he has taken in by abortionists and Pro-Abort greed and that you will not vote for him.
Calls are the most preferred, faxes second and e-mails third:
(850) 488-7146 or (850)-488-4441
Fax (850) 487-0801 or email Charlie.Crist@MyFlorida.com”
My take: Pro-Choice Americans who celebrate this Veto- are actually cheering over the tossing of thousands more of our children into garbage heaps- they don’t know what they are doing- but if they regarded the plain biological facts of what kind of medical procedure abortion is- they would know. They should know- here is one more opportunity to know- to wake up- repent-take care to support women and children- born and unborn. I am a proud convert from pro-death choice, and I’m a non-partisan- I don’t regard pro-life as a partisan issue- Republican pro-lifers should demand more from their parties “pro-life” representatives- lest you get more of the same like “Sorry Charlie” Crist-types. I have found that the Pro-Death Choice camp is much more assertive and aggressive about getting what they want from their Democratic candidates and representatives- nothing wrong in being assertive if your cause is actually right is there?
For those who are still open-minded, and open-hearted, but lingering in that Pro-Death Choice encampment- consider this factual assist from the decidedly non-pro-life advocate source- The National Geographic and their documentary “In the Womb” where the ultrasound technology which has the Pro-Death advocates so panicked- is put on good display.
