Dem state Senator says Crist appears likely to veto abortion ultrasound billby George Bennett | May 5th, 2010
HOLLYWOOD — Gov. Charlie Crist appears likely to veto a bill requiring women to see ultrasounds before they can get abortions, state Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood, said today.
Sobel said she had a brief conversation with Crist as he visited the Seminole reservation for a ceremonial signing of a $1 billion gaming compact.
“I think it looks positive for a veto, but it’s not over ’til he vetoes it,” Sobel said. “I actually went up and whispered in his ear….It means a lot to the women in this state.”
The ultrasound bill didn’t come up when Crist spoke briefly with reporters before leaving the event.
