01WEB_RickScott061115_750x525_8colTALLAHASSEE — Women in Florida will have to wait 24 hours and make at least two appointments before getting an abortion under a bill that Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Wednesday.

HB 633 includes exceptions for victims of rape, incest, domestic violence and human trafficking, but those seeking abortions must provide proof of those situations with a police report or medical documents.

“We are blessed in the state of Florida to have a governor that stands for life,” said Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, R-Mount Dora, who sponsored the bill.

    The taking of life is a serious matter of which God takes notice. Government should take the lives of those who have proved to be a danger to lawful citizens and conversely protect those who are unable to protect themselves.
