Dem state Senator says Crist appears likely to veto abortion ultrasound bill

by 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.

    How can out of state “Mainstream Republicans” with money donate to Charlie Crist?

  2. Kevin G Says:

    Of course a Democrat would say the Governor would “likely” veto this Bill. The fact is that this is important legislation and that would likely save a lot of lives as seeing the “blob of flesh” or “tissue” actually has hands and feet and that the Mother would not have to like with all of the guilt and stress that follows making that decision. The Democratic Party has supported and reaped huge contributions from the multi-billion dollar industry for decades.

  3. Prolife Democrats Says:

    I hope he does not veto the ultrasound bill. Prolife democrats are already voting for him and would not appreciate a veto of the ultrasound bill.
