MIAMI- 04/13/2010: Today, the Criminal & Civil Justice Policy Council passed, with both Republican and Democartic support, by an 11-4 margin HB 1449, which will strengthen Florida's parental notification law! Due to the hard work of the Christian Family Coalition, state representatives, Eduardo "Eddy" Gonzalez, Julio Robaina, and Michael B. Weinstein who are members of the council, were already co-sponsors of the bill!
While the ACLU of Florida and Planned Parenthood of Florida each testified against the bill, Anthony Verdugo, Founder and Executive Director of the Christian Family Coalition was the only person to testify in support of the bill. Mr. Verdugo pointed out the following facts: -An overwhelming majority of Floridians (65%) voted to amend our state constitution to provide for parental notification before a minor, unmarried girl can obtain an abortion.
* Abortion is a high risk procedure and parents are entrusted by the state for the health, safety and welfare of their children.
