Well actually, [the ultrasound bill] passed in the House and the Senate, unfortunately it was vetoed by then-governor Crist. … This year, we’re moving forward. You know, we feel very strongly that this is an issue of great importance in the state of Florida. There will be a bill. There will be various pro-life legislation, different bills proposed this year, but one of them is certainly going to be the bill requiring an ultrasound prior to a woman having an abortion. Most abortion clinics have these ultrasound equipment, they just don’t use it, particularly for these first-trimester abortions. So if we can do that, and save one baby’s life, I think it’s something that’s worth it. #
