Betty Castor on Abortion


Abortion should be rare, safe and legal

Abortion is a very personal decision. I think it should be rare, safe and legal.
Source: Florida Senate Debate, in St. Petersburg Times Oct 19, 2004

Protect a Woman's Right to Choose

Betty believes we should minimize the number of abortions. She believes a woman has a right to choose as set forth in Roe vs. Wade. She's against late-term abortion, except in cases where the life or health of the mother is threatened.
