Biden denounces Florida’s abortion ban at six weeks

Florida Supreme Court Bans Abortions After Sixth Week, Sparking Controversy and Divisions Over Reproductive Rights

Florida Supreme Court recently cleared the way for stricter abortion regulations with Governor Ron DeSantis issuing a ban on abortions after the sixth week to go into effect in 30 days. President Joe Biden strongly criticized this decision, stating that it will make crucial medical care even more difficult to access for millions of women in the state and across the South. He called the decision “outrageous” and expressed concern over its impact on women’s reproductive rights.

Currently, abortions are allowed in Florida up to the 15th week of pregnancy, but this timeline will now be significantly shortened, making it difficult for women to even realize they are pregnant before the ban takes effect. In addition to tightening abortion rights, the Florida Supreme Court also allowed for a vote on abortion rights in November, giving residents the opportunity to decide whether to add an amendment to the constitution guaranteeing the right to abortion. This comes in the midst of a nationwide debate over abortion rights following the US Supreme Court’s controversial decision to overturn the landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade.

Conservatives have been pushing for more restrictions on abortion, with about 20 states now having banned or restricted access to the procedure. Despite this, polls show that a majority of Americans support continued access to safe abortions. President Biden and Democrats are hoping to leverage their support for abortion rights to win over female voters in upcoming elections. Meanwhile, other news stories cover a range of topics including animal welfare, tourism discounts, colorism in families and digital commerce. The ongoing conversation around abortion rights reflects deep divisions within US society and highlights reproductive rights as a key political issue.
