Florida Gov Signs Law Requiring Parental Consent Before Girls Can Get Abortions


Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a law Tuesday requiring parents or legal guardians to consent before a minor can obtain an abortion.

The pro-life law comes only a day after the United States Supreme Court ruled against a pro-life Louisiana law requiring that abortion doctors have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals. (RELATED: SCOTUS Abortion Ruling Becomes Election Rallying Cry For Conservatives)
