From FOX 35 Orlando, 2/07/2019:
Senator Rick Scott announced on Thursday that he will co-sponsor the S.130, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.
Senator Rick Scott said, “I’m proud to support the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act and will always fight to protect children. The recent embrace of late-term abortion by the New York State Legislature and infanticide by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is shocking, and exactly why we must take action to protect the most vulnerable among us.”
… Senator Scott signed similar legislation into law as Governor of Florida in 2013.
Scott joins many Republican officials misconstruing the legislation.According to ANSIRH, “All Virginia’s bill would do is end the burdensome 24-hour waiting period, remove the state-mandated ultrasound law, and require one doctor—instead of three—to approve a request for third-trimester abortions.”
