Judge Upholds Florida’s 24-Hour Abortion Waiting Period | app

0

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Women will have to wait 24 hours before having an abortion under a Florida judge’s ruling in a nearly seven-year battle over the waiting period.

Circuit Judge Angela Dempsey in Tallahassee dismissed a lawsuit filed on behalf of a Gainesville women’s clinic, saying other medical procedures have similar wait times and other important decisions like getting married , getting divorced and buying a gun have longer waiting times.
