Florida House Passes Bill That Would Ban Abortion After 15 Weeks

Florida’s Republican-controlled House of Representatives approved a bill early Thursday that would make it significantly harder to obtain an abortion, the latest in a series of such measures across the country.

Yay!!! Florida’s new bill to ban abortion after 15wks passed in the House and is headed to the Senate. 

The measure, which has been compared to a new law in Mississippi, bans abortions after 15 weeks, with a few exceptions for medical emergencies, essentially reducing the window from a current 24 weeks. It stops short of an even more aggressive measure in Texas, which banned the procedure after six weeks.
