TALLAHASSEE, May 1 (LSN) – A bill requiring that girls under 18 notify at least one parent before procuring an abortion was passed by the Florida Senate Thursday, and is awaiting final approval from Governor Lawton Chiles. The law does not require parental permission for abortions. It also for court-approved exemptions in some cases. In spite of such concessions, it appears the governor may veto the measure.
