TAMPA, Fla., March 4, 2022 (Newswire.com) - As the only state in the Southeast to allow abortions until 24 weeks, Florida has been deemed a destination state for late-term abortions. However, a legislative bill (HB 5/SB 146) filed earlier this year by Sen. Kelli Stargel and Rep. Erin Grall would ban most abortions in Florida after 15 weeks. The measures are similar to a Mississippi law currently under challenge before the U.S. Supreme Court. This legislation would be the most robust protection for the unborn in Florida's post ruling of Roe vs Wade history if enacted.
New Life Solutions operates four strategically located women's health clinics around the Tampa Bay area and supports HB 5/SB 146. Charles DiMarco, CEO of New Life Solutions, explains, "This bill will do more than reduce fetal and infant mortality. It also protects a pregnant woman's health from the increased risk of physical, mental, and emotional harm that comes with late-term abortions. HB 5/SB 146 promotes the wellbeing of women and creates greater accountability and higher standards for abortion clinics, especially for chemical abortion, which currently represents 56% of all abortions in Florida."
The Florida Senate has passed the bill onto the governor to sign the measure into law.
