State Urges Justices To Reject Abortion Case Appeal

Apr 6, 2016

Attorney General Pam Bondi's office is urging the Florida Supreme Court to turn down an appeal in a legal battle over a 2015 law that requires women to wait 24 hours before having abortions.

A three-judge panel of the 1st District Court of Appeal in February overturned a temporary injunction that had blocked the law from taking effect.

The Florida Legislature is moving forward with a bill that could restrict abortion access. But similar measures have been struck down in other states.
