Jeb! keeps fit for '08

Bids submitted for state-sponsored, anti-abortion services contract

TALLAHASSEE--Gov. Jeb Bush is pushing forward with a $2 million state-sponsored, anti-abortion contract that will include a toll-free hot line directing pregnant women exclusively to local service providers who do not provide abortions.

Abortion-rights proponent Stephanie Grutman of Planned Parenthood said that the $2 million could pay for 55,000 cycles of birth control for low-income women.

"Think about how many unintended pregnancies we could prevent," she said.
