A bill that would require women to wait 24 hours before having abortions passed a second Senate panel Wednesday, while an identical version (HB 633) is ready to go to the House floor.
The Senate Judiciary Committee voted 6-3 along party lines to approve the Senate measure (SB 724), filed by Sen. Anitere Flores, R-Miami.
It would add a 24-hour waiting period to the conditions for informed consent before women can terminate pregnancies.
"Some people change their mind," Flores said. "It is not an undue burden."
