Today, Governor Charlie Crist vetoed a controversial bill that would have required women seeking an abortion to pay for an ultrasound.

On Twitter, the state’s Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink said “I commend the veto of 1143, the ultrasound bill - Governor Crist did the right thing.” U.S. Representative Kendrick Meek, State Senator Dan Gelber, and the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida also applauded Crist’s veto.

Barbara Zdravecky is the CEO and President of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida.

"Florida needs to elect a pro-choice governor in November.”
