No denying Dems' real agenda

pregnant and in schoolDemocrats in Florida have failed so far to block a bill that would require parental consent before a minor could have an abortion.

Current state law provides that parents be notified when a child under age 18 seeks an abortion, and the new proposal requires parental consent for minors to terminate their preborn babies.

Lynda Bell of Florida Right to Life tells OneNewsNow 13 amendments were offered, mostly from liberal Democrats, toward the end of the session.

"There were 12 bad amendments that were meant to nullify or really, really water down any effective legislation that would have put parents back in charge of their children," Bell relays. "Every one of those went down in defeat."

The one measure that passed, however, strengthened the bill. The committee was on the clock, and when the time expired, there could not be a vote on another one, so that will be taken in a separate session.

Bell says the Democrats were showing their real agenda.

"These are the same people that don't think you should have a firearm, even if it's for hunting, until you're 21, but they want to reduce the age of consent for an abortion for a minor girl to 16," the pro-lifer explains. "This is how ridiculous and hypocritical the Democrats have become."

If the measure passes out of committee, Bell is confident the full Senate will approve it as well as the bill that was voted directly to the House floor for a vote. She says that will put minor girls back in the care of the parents rather than in the hands of an abortionist.
