Today, at a ceremonial bill-signing at the governor’s mansion, Florida governor Rick Scott signed four pro-life bills into law. The bills included House Bill 97, which strips abortion coverage from health insurance exchanges created through the Affordable Care Act; House Bill 501, which ensures that funds collected from the sale of Choose Life license plates are quickly and efficiently distributed throughout the state; House Bill 1247, which places tougher restrictions on the judicial bypass for the state’s parental notification of abortion; and House Bill 1127, which requires doctors to perform an ultrasound on women seeking an abortion.
