Florida Supreme Court Makes Historic Ruling


Florida Supreme Court Makes Historic Ruling – Triggers 1 New Law Liberals Will Hate

Democrats have been fighting to stop Florida from becoming more red. Republican Gov. DeSantis continues to defy them, scoring major conservative wins for the state. He has personal gone to war with the “woke.”

And it looks like he’s winning. He shut down transgenderism propaganda in schools. Not long ago, he passed a law that protected unborn life.

Planned Parenthood tried to challenge DeSantis’s law, taking to the state Supreme Court. The major liberal group was continuing a campaign is had led in many red states. But the court just issued a ruling—which will trigger another law that Democrats won’t be able to stand.

From Daily Wire:
The Florida Supreme Court on Monday found that the Sunshine State’s constitution’s privacy protections do not extend to abortion, which is the intentional killing of a live human in a woman’s womb.

The ruling triggers a pro-life law, called the Heartbeat Protection Act, to go into effect as of May 1. The Florida law bans abortion after six weeks of pregnancy with exceptions for the life of the mother, rape, incest, and rare fatal fetal abnormalities…

“Based on our analysis finding no clear right to abortion embodied within the Privacy Clause, Planned Parenthood cannot overcome the presumption of constitutionality and is unable to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that the 15-week ban is unconstitutional.”

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis scored a major win this week. The state Supreme Court ruled to uphold a 15-week abortion ban in Florida. Because of this decision, another trigger bill—which was signed a year later—will take next month.

That bill bans abortion in Florida after six weeks, which is often considered the time a heartbeat is detected.

The court’s decision appears to mirror the 2021 ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court, which struck down Roe v. Wade. The Florida court decided that the Bill of Rights does not provide a “clear right to abortion.”

The court ruled that Planned Parenthood “cannot overcome the presumption of constitutionality” and could not convince the court that the state’s ban was unconstitutional.

This comes after the U.S. Supreme Court originally decided that states, not the federal government, had the right to pass abortion legislation. Many conservative-led states quickly passed restrictions or outright bans. This has provoked abortion activists, including most Democrats, to challenge laws and circumvent the states’ rights.

Key Takeaways:

  • Florida’s Supreme Court ruled to uphold a 15-week abortion ban.
  • The ruling will open the way for a 6-week abortion ban.
  • This comes after Planned Parenthood sued to protect abortion rights.
