Florida state senator introduces 2012 session’s first anti-abortion bill

State Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami, has introduced the first anti-abortion bill to be considered by the Florida Legislature in its 2012 session.

Senate Bill 290 aims to restrict “the circumstances in which an abortion may be performed in the third trimester or after viability.”

From the Florida Senate website’s summary of the bill:

Requiring a physician who offers to perform or who performs abortions to complete continuing education related to ethics; providing that an infant born alive subsequent to an attempted abortion is entitled to the same rights, powers, and privileges as are granted by the laws of this state; providing that it is a first-degree misdemeanor to unlawfully advertise how to obtain an abortion; prohibiting a person from establishing, conducting, managing, or operating a clinic in this state without a valid and current license issued by the Agency for Health Care Administration; revising the amount of the fine that the Agency for Health Care Administration may impose for a violation of ch. 390, F.S., relating to abortion, or part II of ch. 408, F.S., relating to licensure, etc.

According to a press release the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates

SB 290 contains nearly a dozen unnecessary restrictions targeting doctors who provide abortion care in Florida. The bill is part of a highly coordinated attack on women’s health care access across the country. Instead of creating more obstacles for women seeking reproductive health care, elected officials should make it easier to obtain affordable birth control and help parents and teachers provide comprehensive sex education. These are commonsense ways to prevent unintended pregnancies.

Emily Caponetti, the statewide legislative director for the Planned Parenthood organization, says in a statement today that “instead of focusing on creating jobs and fixing our economy last session, the Florida Legislature filed 18 bills that attacked women’s health.”

“By filing SB 290 during the first committee week, legislators are signaling their intention to play politics with women’s lives once again in 2012,” Caponetti says in today’s statement.
