Biden to Challenge Florida’s Six-Week Abortion Ban in 2024 Election

President Joe Biden blamed Donald Trump for Florida’s upcoming abortion ban and other restrictions nationwide, calling it a “healthcare crisis for women.” The state’s six-week abortion ban is set to go into effect on May 1, at the same time that Florida voters are considering a ballot measure to enshrine abortion rights in the state’s constitution. Despite Trump’s wavering stance on abortion, Biden is seeking to hold him accountable. Advocates are striving for bipartisan support for the ballot initiative, with a focus on educating voters about the importance of the issue. Organizers gathered enough signatures for the initiative, emphasizing that it is a separate issue from candidate campaigns. While Republicans argue that other issues are more pressing, they are also wary of potential backlash against abortion restrictions in the upcoming elections. Abortion-rights supporters have been successful in various states, including conservative ones, highlighting the divisiveness of the issue. Florida is expected to be a battleground state in the presidential election due to the extremism around abortion in the state. Governor Ron DeSantis criticized the abortion amendment but the state Supreme Court approved the ballot language.
