Florida Lawmakers Advance Bill to Ban Abortions After 15 Weeks

HeadlineFeb 18, 2022

Florida’s state House has approved Republican-led legislation that would ban abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The bill mirrors a Mississippi anti-abortion law currently under review by the U.S. Supreme Court that threatens to severely weaken or overturn the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortions nationwide. The measure could be approved by Florida’s full state Legislature as early as next week.
