Florida Supreme Court Blocks Measure Forcing Women to Delay Health Care, Make Additional Trips When Seeking Safe, Legal Abortion

The Florida Supreme Court today blocked a 2015 measure which forces a woman to wait at least 24 hours and make at least one additional, medically unnecessary trip before she is able to receive safe, legal abortion care. The law—which an appellate court allowed to take effect in February—fails to include any protections for a woman whose pregnancy threatens her health or a meaningful exception for survivors of rape, incest, or intimate partner violence.

Mississippi Governor Signs Ban on Most Common Method of Second Trimester Abortion

This is the second time in under two years that Governor Bryant has signed an abortion ban into law. In April 2014, he signed a measure banning abortion in the state after 20 weeks of pregnancy—with zero exceptions for survivors of rape or incest and only an extremely narrow exception for medical emergencies and lethal fetal abnormalities.
