Florida enacts ban on abortions after 6 weeks of pregnancy.

Florida implemented a ban on abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, limiting the state’s previous status as a refuge for abortion access. The law makes it a felony to perform or participate in an abortion after six weeks, with exceptions for rape, incest, and human trafficking. Doctors are concerned about potential delays in care, causing health risks for women. Some patients were unaware of the restrictions and timelines. Anti-abortion groups support the law, while abortion providers are preparing to assist patients in seeking care in other states like North Carolina and Virginia. The Florida Access Network is ready to help individuals cover the costs of out-of-state abortions. Women are now facing long distances to access abortion services.
