'EVERY LIFE IS IMPORTANT': DeSantis Signs Bill Banning Abortions After 15 Weeks

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.14.22

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed a bill banning late-term abortions in the state of Florida; abortions will be banned after 15 weeks.

“We are here today to defend those that can’t defend themselves,” DeSantis said at the signing. “It is the most significant protection for life that’s been enacted in this state in a generation.”

“This is a statement of our values, that every life is important,” he added.

In Florida, it is currently legal to get an abortion up to the 24th week of pregnancy. The new law will go into effect on July 1 of this year.

“The legislation includes no exceptions for rape or incest and only allows abortions past 15 weeks in cases of a medical emergency or if there’s a ‘fatal fetal abnormality,'” Axios reports.
