As Florida lawmakers are debating an ultrasound bill that would require women seeking an abortion to view the fetus, a poll found that more women than men support the measure.

A Quinnipiac survey found that 53 percent of women polled agreed with the ultrasound bill, compared to 48 percent of men, FOX 13 in Tampa reported on Friday. “I think women are generally more informed about their bodies than men are," said Pat Farley, a pro-life activist who supports the bill.

Supporters of the bill say that even if one woman changes her mind about having an abortion, it's worth it. The state Legislature passed a similar bill last year, only to have former Gov. Charlie Crist veto it.

The ultrasound will give women more information to make a decision, whatever it may be.

"I don't believe women enter into an abortion or potential abortion lightly,” said James Hart, who doesn't believe an ultrasound would change the mind of women seeking abortions.”I don't think that they do it on a whim."
