Florida Restores State Abortion Ban Beyond 15 Weeks After Temporary Halt

Judge John C Cooper of an appellate court in Florida’s capital of Tallahassee ruled that the ban in question – enshrined in a bill that Republican lawmakers approved in April – violates privacy protections in the state constitution.
