Florida Supreme Court set to rule on 15-week abortion ban after hearing oral arguments
The Florida Supreme Court is set to rule on the state abortion ban after hearing oral arguments earlier this month from the solicitor general and counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.
At issue in Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida et al. v. State of Florida et al is legislation prohibiting all abortions after 15 weeks of gestation and is part of House Bill 5, enacted by Gov. Ron DeSantis.
The plaintiffs sued the state last year alleging that HB 5, also known as the Reducing Fetal and Infant Mortality Act, violates a right to privacy within the Florida Constitution.
