Parental Consent Bill up again in Senate
On Tues. Dec. 10, 2019, at 10:00am to 12:00 noon in Tallahassee, in Pat Thomas Committee Room, 412 Knott Building, the Senate Health Policy Committee will take up SB404 requiring parental consent before abortion. Last time the committee heard the bill, Democrat’s on the committee bogged down the time allotted by filing 15 amendments which ran the clock out for public testimony or even allow questions or debate by the Senators on the committee. Make plans to attend now and let your voice be heard. Come early, put in a speaker card and let your opinion for this good bill be heard. Wear BLUE and show your support for this good pro-life bill.
