Conservatives Up In Arms Over Florida Governor Abortion Stance

Conservatives up in arms over Florida governor abortion stanceEarlier this month Florida Governor Charlie Crist vetoed a bill that would have required a woman to get an ultrasound before an abortion, in an apparent reversal of his earlier pro-life stance. In response, a conservative group launched an ad campaign targeting the governor who is running for the United States Senate later this year.

The conservative organization called Family Research Council (FRC) Action PAC unveiled a radio ad campaign that urges state residents to oppose Crist and his policies. The ad is also part of the FRC campaign to help elect Crist’s conservative opponent Marco Rubio.

"Governor Charlie Crist used to claim to be pro-life. Now he’s just pro-Crist. Since leaving his party he’s decided he’d rather be pro-abortion, removing the pro-life section from his website and vetoing a bill that would allow women to see an ultrasound of their child before having an abortion," the ad states.

It makes a reference to the governor’s departure from the GOP earlier this year to run as as an independent when it became clear he wouldn’t have his party’s support.

Florida fiscal and social conservatives have billed Rubio as a pro-family and pro-life candidate.
