Here’s more on the bill, which happily makes no exceptions for rape or incest:
FOX NEWS – Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed legislation banning abortions past 15 weeks on Thursday.
The legislation allows for abortions past 15 weeks only in situations involving a “fatal fetal abnormality,” and makes no exceptions for rape or incest. The law limits the time an abortion is legal by nine weeks, as abortions were previously banned in the state past 24 weeks.
DeSantis emphasized that the legislation is not the only aspect of his pro-life agenda, adding that the bill also allocates funds to increase the number of infant mortality review boards across Florida.
“If you’re looking at what we’ve done this week, we’re promoting fatherhood in Florida,” DeSantis said. “We want our kids to have dads in the home. We want the fathers present and to take responsibility. It’s the most important thing you can do is to take responsibility for the upbringing of your kids.”
The bill goes into effect on July 1st, but you can believe the pro-life portion is already being challenged in court.
I wish the bill banned abortions before 15 weeks, but at this point we’ll take what we can get.
Arizona did the same thing recently. Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban is the one being considered before the Supreme Court now. Hopefully the Supreme Court will not fail the unborn this time around when they rule on it later this year.
