Crist on Ultrasound Bill

June 9th, 2010 by flanews

Governor Charlie Crist has until June 20th to act on a legislation making it harder for a woman to get an abortion, but he says he doesnt need that long. Crist has signaled he may veto the bill and he may make his final decision as early as tonight. Crist says hes been listening to both sides of the argument.

I continue to try and keep an open mind always so Im giving it a lot of consideration. Its a very personal thing really and I just want to do what I think is right for Florida, said Crist.

If signed women in their first trimester of pregnancy would have to pay for an ultrasound before they could have an abortion. The legislation also bans taxpayer money from being used to fund abortions.
