  • Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a measure banning most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. The measure, House Bill 5, contains the strictest prohibition passed in Florida during the Roe v. Wade era. It does not include exceptions for pregnancies that are the result of rape, incest, or human trafficking. Under the law, women can still obtain an abortion if their health is threatened or if their baby has a “fatal fetal abnormality.” (Articles here, here, here, and here)
