Hundreds protest possible abortion restriction

A hundred women were on Capitol Hill in Tallahassee today, expressing their concern about possible changes to Florida’s abortion laws.

Right now, there are three proposed bills that would put more restrictions on abortions or completely ban them. Representatives from Planned Parenthood and Catholics for Choice say they want to make sure women’s rights to choose are protected.

Sarah Hutchinson/Catholics for Choice: “We imagine a world where women and men are trusted to make moral decisions about their own lives each according to his or her own conscience.”

Supporters of tougher regulations were collecting signatures at the capitol to support labeling a fetus as a person at conception.
