Florida Legislature Approves Christian Family Coalition-Backed Pro-Life Victory!
Governor Rick Scott Signs 24-hour waiting period before abortion!

Florida State Representative Jennifer Sullivan and CFC Executive Director Anthony Verdugo.
MIAMI-The 2015 Florida legislative session produced a huge pro-life victory with passage of HB 633 - Informed Patient Consent, sponsored by State Representative Jennifer Sullivan and State Senator Anitere Flores. The bill, which requires a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion was Christian Family Coalition's top pro-life legislative priority this session.

Christian Family Coalition lobbied dozens of legislators for their support and co-sponsorship of the bill resulting in more than two dozen legislators (27) putting their name on the bill, including South Florida representatives Bryan Avila and George Moraitis.

On Wednesday, June 10th, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed the bill, Florida joins 27 other states requiring a waiting period for an abortion, with several states requiring waits as long as 72 hours.

"We commend the sponsors of this bill, State Representative Sullivan and State Senator Flores, for their courageous stand in support of women and children in Florida. As Rep. Sullivan stated, CFC believes this measure does empower women to make fully informed decisions."
