Florida House Overturns Abortion Ban Veto

The Florida House of Representatives voted to override a veto on a ban of late term abortions. Governor Lawton Chiles had vetoed the ban, stating that although he himself was pro-life, the bill did not protect women’s rights. Chiles believes that abortion decisions should be left up to women and their doctors.

Legislatures in 19 states have passed laws banning late-term abortions. Five of the bans have been overturned.
