House sends abortion bill to Gov. Charlie Crist

Lawmakers have finally sent Gov. Charlie Crist the abortion bill, HB 1143. It's the last bill from the legislative session. Crist has expressed concerns about the legislation, which would require most women to have an ultrasound before getting an abortion. Although they would still have to pay for it, they could opt out of viewing the ultrasound.

Crist has 15 days to act on the bill.
