Looking ahead: The U.S. Supreme Court recently declined to decide part of an Indiana law that bans abortions based solely on the sex, race, physical or mental disability of the baby—so-called “eugenic” abortions. The Florida legislature should follow Indiana’s lead and enact similar legislation. Although legislative leaders this session took a back seat and, for whatever reason, did not allow a fetal heartbeat bill–banning abortion once a heartbeat is detected–to get a hearing, it certainly should follow Indiana’s lead. “Not wanting to have a child is one thing, not wanting to have that kind of child is another.”
