Florida Gov. DeSantis signs 15-week abortion ban

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law on Thursday that bans abortion after 15 weeks in his state.

The state joins several other Republican-led states that have recently passed tighter restrictions to protect the lives of the unborn.

Standing for families

“If you’re looking at what we’ve done this week, we’re promoting fatherhood in Florida,” DeSantis said.

“We want our kids to have dads in the home. We want the fathers present and to take responsibility. It’s the most important thing you can do is to take responsibility for the upbringing of your kids,” he added.

The bigger picture

Opponents criticized the move as it did not allow exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

However, those opponents neglect the fact that the ban is not until 15 weeks, leaving a period of time for such cases.

A Mississippi law regarding abortion remains under consideration by the Supreme Court that could return more decisions regarding abortion laws to the state level.

Florida’s bill marks another milestone in the effort to protect young lives as the intense battle over the issue of life continues.
