Remember how the giddy lefty media thrilled to call New York’s Andrew Cuomo “The Love Gov?” Well, they hate Florida’s Ron DeSantis (R) with exactly the same intensity. And now, the governor they love to hate strikes again. The Republican has signed a bill outlawing abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, nine weeks earlier than Florida law previously allowed.
Cue the wailing and gnashing of the teeth.
According to FNC, “The legislation allows for abortions past 15 weeks only in situations involving a ‘fatal fetal abnormality,’ and makes no exceptions for rape or incest.” Mississippi also passed a 15-week ban this year, which is currently being challenged in federal court.
The Florida signing follows on the heels of his approving Florida’s “Responsible Fatherhood Act,” a $70 million initiative to promote and teach fatherhood in the state. Progressives being who they are, they were unhappy with that bill too. In fact, they attacked NFL coaching legend and Christian family activist Tony Dungy for applauding it.
In response, Dungy pointed out that nobody complained 14 years ago when he supported Barack Obama saying the same thing Gov. DeSantis did. But self-awareness and honesty not really being a progressive strong suit, Dungy shouldn’t expect any apologies.
As for DeSantis, well, you can judge a man by his enemies.
