Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed a law that has withdrawn state funding from clinics that provided abortions.
The bill that cuts the funding passed the Republican legislator with little issue. Anti-abortionists have hailed the new legislation as a “historic victory” while opponents of the bill say the Governor has pandered to the anti-abortionists over his own constituents access to health care is shameful.
The new law will block funding to clinics that provided services to low-income and disadvantaged families. The new law will also require annual inspections of clinics of health clinics.
