Pro-lifer watches 'war on women' in FL

counseling therapy sessionFlorida lawmakers are considering bills to help women damaged by abortion but the left-wing groups are predictably fighting them.

Women who experience physical or emotional problems can sue doctors under a provision the Florida legislature is considering, which expands the limit from the present two years to 10.

A House committee has advanced the bill to the full House and a companion bill has been introduced in the Senate.

Lynda Bell of Florida Right to Life says the bill makes sense, since many women, especially teen girls, aren't aware of their injuries until years after the abortion.

"And they don't find out until they're in their 20's that maybe they can't have children," she says, "or they realize that they weren't properly informed as far as being given information that the law provides."

The insurance industry opposes the legislation, and so do Planned Parenthood, National Organization for Women, and ACLU.  

"So the whole thing is interesting to me," the pro-life activist observes. "To sit there and watch people who say they care about women fight a bill that would protect women."
