A bill (HB 1335) requiring minors to get a parent’s consent for abortions passed a House committee this week. The debate was mostly civil, but some audience members had to be escorted out.
Florida law says parents have to be notified when their daughters seek abortions. Under the proposal, parents would have to give their permission.
The House Health Quality Subcommittee heard from a string of women who’ve had abortions, but who have differing opinions about the bill.
