Florida House of Representatives Passes Bill Banning Most Abortions After Six Weeks, Headed to Governor’s Desk for Approval

The Florida House of Representatives has approved a bill that would ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, with exceptions for cases of risk to the mother's life and pregnancies caused by rape, incest or human trafficking. The bill, titled the "Heartbeat Protection Act," would make Florida one of the most restrictive states in the country to obtain an abortion and is headed to Governor Ron DeSantis' desk for approval. If approved, it would take effect July 1 and has been met with criticism from pro-choice advocates who argue it would limit access to safe and legal abortions.
