We’ve got big news coming from the Sunshine State! The Florida Supreme Court blocked a 2015 measure which would have forced a woman to wait at least 24 hours and make at least one additional medically unnecessary trip before she is able to receive safe legal abortion care.

The Center for Reproductive Rights, American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Florida, and Richard Johnson of Tallahassee challenged this case in June 2015 on behalf of Bread and Roses Women’s Health Center, a  reproductive health care provider, and Medical Students for Choice, an organization dedicated to making reproductive health care including abortion. The measure was temporarily blocked by a state trial court in late June 2105 but then an appellate court allowed the measure to take effect in February 2016.
