Profiling

Is abortion a form of racial profiling? A majority of members in Florida's House of Representatives think so. It passed a bill on April 18 that requires doctors to sign an affidavit before performing an abortion confirming the procedure is not based on the fetus' race or gender. A group of African-American lawmakers walked out of the debate and want an apology.
