Florida Republicans work to make 15-week abortions illegal


As state legislatures across the country gear up to start a new session for the new year, Florida Republicans introduced a bill that would ban abortions at 15 weeks’ gestation.

This bill comes soon after a similar bill from Mississippi caused nationwide controversy when it was argued before the Supreme Court in December. It has implications that could affect the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

The House Speaker Chris Sprowls was quick to support the legislation. He wrote in a statement celebrating the move that House Republicans are “steadfast in our commitment to Florida’s children, both born and unborn.”
