Florida Introduces 20 Week Abortion Ban

Robin Marty

The state prepares to vote on a so-called "fetal pain" ban.

The state of Florida was one of the few predominately anti-choice states not to pass a 20 week ban on abortion.  But now, the state is playing catch up.

Via the Florida Independent:

Florida Rep. Daniel Davis, R-Jacksonville, has introduced a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks.

The measure is similar to a handful of bills seen last year in legislatures across the country: so-called “fetal pain” bills that have been found to be “neither scientifically nor constitutionally sound” by researchers.
