Abortion Laws To Be Overturned?
(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – The Florida Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case that challenges the state law that restricts abortion rights.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., has said that he was going to wait and see how the challenge against the law that limits access to abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy turns out, before deciding on other moves he might take regarding abortions.
The lawsuit has been brought forth by Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and other abortion providers across Florida. Until the challenge has been completely played out the law has been temporarily blocked from going into effect.
Whiney White, staff attorney for the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project told the Examiner that she was happy to see that the court had not immediately blocked them and was willing to hear the challenge. She further pointed out that there can be many dangers brought on by the ban that this law imposes.
She finally added that she was hoping the four decades of precedence would help them prove that this ban on abortions was unconstitutional.
According to a Politico report, Florida Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, had previously suggested that the 15-week ban should become a 12-week ban unless they were dealing with rape victims or cases of incest. There are already exceptions within Florida law that protect the need to preserve the mother’s life if there is a serious danger to her health or if the fetus has a fatal abnormality. The current law though does not allow for any exceptions in cases of incest, rape, or human trafficking.
DeSantis signed the law in April, two months before the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that had previously protected abortion rights.
