Radio ad urges Florida to stop Governor Crist

.- Following Governor Charlie Crist’s veto of a bill which would require ultrasounds to prior to first trimester abortions, the Political Action Committee (PAC) of the Family Research Council (FRC) has launched a statewide radio campaign urging Floridians to stop Crist.

Last week, Gov. Crist, who recently left his party and removed the pro-life section of his website, vetoed a bill requiring an ultrasound to be performed before all first trimester abortions.

“This bill places an inappropriate burden on women seeking to terminate a pregnancy,” Gov. Crist stated in his veto announcement.

“Individuals hold strong personal views on the issue of life, as do I,” he continued. “However, personal views should not result in laws that unwisely expand the role of government and coerce people to obtain medical tests or procedures that are not medically necessary.”Women would have had the option to opt out of viewing the images of their live child prior to the abortion.

The bill also would have allowed Florida to opt out of using federal funds for abortion under the new health care law.

The FRC Action PAC ad, which will air across Florida on 74 stations beginning next week, describes Crist’s recent actions: “Governor Charlie Crist used to claim to be pro-life,” it says. “Now he's just pro-Crist. Since leaving his party he's decided he'd rather be pro-abortion, removing the pro-life section from his website and vetoing a bill that would allow women to see an ultrasound of their child before having an abortion."
