Rick Scott Approves Abortion 24-hour Waiting Period Bill

From the Palm Beach Post’s Gary Fineout, 05/10/2015:

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Women will have to wait 24 hours before having an abortion under a bill Republican Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Wednesday, a reflective period supporters said they hoped would change some women’s minds before ending their pregnancies.

Scott signed the abortion measure along with 54 other bills, including legislation that would allow terminally ill patients to take experimental medicines. Scott also signed into law a measure that revises the rules for the panel that regulates Florida electric rates. He vetoed a bill dealing with home medical equipment providers.
