Florida Abortion Providers File Suit to Block 15-Week Ban

HeadlineJun 02, 2022

In Florida, abortion providers have filed suit to block a new law banning abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The Center for Reproductive Rights said in a statement, “The Florida Supreme Court has long held that their state constitution protects the right to end a pregnancy. That means even if Roe falls, abortion should remain protected in Florida, and this ban should be blocked.” Barring a court injunction, Florida’s 15-week abortion ban is set to take effect on July 1.
