The Meddling Has Ended
I guess the 13 year old pregnant Florida girl under the guardianship of the Department of Children and Families is going to have her abortion as she requested. Yesterday, the Juvenile Court judge decided that the girl was competent to make her decision for abortion and that the abortion would not cause her mental or physical harm. And today Governor Jeb Bush indicated there would be no further legal appeal from the Florida government. So the girl can get out of the spotlight and the Department can get on with their job of providing a permanent safe placement for her. I think that Governor Bush has learned something from the Schiavo case in which he was heavily involved. There are times when a politician must give up being a judge and let the legal system work its way until the politicians decide after diligent review to change the law. And that is what may be happening in Florida. The Florida state Legislature is moving a bill through committees to require notification of parents or guardians when girls seek abortion. In 2003, the Florida Supreme Court struck down a 1999 law requiring parents to be notified if their minor daughters seek an abortion. ..Maurice.
