Share

We talk to Kellie Dupree, Vice President of Public Policy & Communications for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, on the bill that would require women to wait 24 hours after consultation to get an abortion. The bill passed the house and senate with mostly republican support and democrat opposition. Along the way the bill was amended to exempt cases of rape, incest, human trafficking and domestic abuse.
