TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Gov. Rick Scott has signed two abortion bills into law.
One of them (HB 1127) requires women to undergo ultrasounds before getting an abortion. The other (HB 1247) makes it more difficult for minors to get court waivers from Florida's parental notification law.
Among the other laws Scott signed Friday was a law (SB 1676) that would set limits on lawsuits against nonprofit Florida teaching hospitals and their staffs. Another law (SB 644) strengthens Florida's "Silver Alert" program that helps find missing elderly people.
