Florida court allows 24-hour abortion waiting period to go into effect


Friday, February 26, 2016

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Steven H. Aden regarding a Florida appellate court’s order in Gainesville Woman Care v. Florida to enforce a law that requires a 24-hour waiting period before getting an abortion:

“Florida’s law is a common-sense measure that simply gives women and teen girls one day to think about having a procedure that is potentially life-changing and fraught with risks. Basic health standards should not allow for ‘drop-in abortions.’ The court has done the right thing in allowing this good law to go into effect.”
