Ultrasound Legislation Bill Puts Crist in a Corner

May 18th, 2010 by flanews

A tricky piece of legislation is headed to the governorís desk and it sets the newly independent US Senate candidate between a rock and a hard place. Lawmakers approved legislation requiring women in their first trimester of pregnancy to get an ultrasound before they have an abortion. If Crist signs the bill heíll upset pro-choice women; if he vetoes it, heíll lose some votes from the right. Crist says heís leaning toward a veto.

ďIt does strike me as a bit intrusive and I just want to continue to listen to the people of Florida and continue to get their input. Itís important to me to hear from them and thatís what Iím doing,Ē said Crist.

Thousand of people from both sides of the issue have called and emailed the governorís office, even though he hasnít received the bill yet.
