Unborn fetus legislation
Legislation that adds new protections for an unborn fetus is on its way to the governor.
The bill would toughen the penalties when someone commits a crime and causes the death of an unborn child.
It was inspired by a Tampa woman whose boyfriend tricked her into taking an abortion pill.
Remee Lee/Tricked into taking abortion pill: "I hope that even if one women gets to hold their baby as a result than this will all be worth it to me."
Jim Lee/Remee's Father: "This would have been my mother's first great-grandchild, my wife and I's first grandchild and it'll always live with us."
Her then-boyfriend pleaded guilty to product tampering and was sentenced to nearly fourteen years in prison.
The new legislation would allow up to a life sentence for harming a fetus.
