Florida's ultrasound-before-abortion bill sponsor says it's not about ideology

Florida state Senator Andy Gardiner is the sponsor of a controversial bill to require doctors to show and describe a sonogram to women before a first-trimester abortion, unless they opt out. For Gardiner, opposition to abortion isn't an exercise in ideology, where the Republicans usually vote one way and the Democrats usually vote the other. Beneath Gardiner's ideological skin lies a more-powerful motivation for the bill: his son and his experience in the delivery room.
