In 2017, 71,050 abortions were performed in Florida, although not all abortions that took place in Florida were made available to state residents: some patients may have traveled from other states and some Florida residents may have traveled to another state for an abortion. Between 2014 and 2017, Florida`s abortion rate dropped 10 percent, from 20.6 to 18.6 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age. Abortions in Florida account for 8.2% of all abortions in the United States.  TALLAHASSEE, Florida – Florida health care providers today petitioned the Florida Supreme Court to review their case challenging the ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy (House Bill 5). The move comes after lower courts repeatedly shut down significant legal avenues to block HB 5. The plaintiffs argue that the law — which criminalizes basic health care and threatens to jail doctors who care for their patients — violates the state constitution. The plaintiffs plan to file a formal briefing within the next 10 days asking the state Supreme Court to recognize jurisdiction over the case and consider their request to block HB 5, which has been in effect since July 1. April 2022: The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration begins reviewing records of clinics that offer abortions to verify compliance with the 24-delay law, which has so far led to complaints against three clinics. On January 1, 2012, Bobby Joe Rogers, 41, bombed the American Family Planning Clinic in Pensacola, Florida, with a Molotov cocktail; The fire destroyed the building.
Rogers told investigators that he was motivated by his opposition to abortion to commit the crime, and that the direct cause of the act was that a patient had entered the clinic during one of the frequent anti-abortion protests. The clinic had already been bombed at Christmas 1984 and was the scene of the murders of Dr. John Britton and James Barrett in 1994. [Note 2]  The Army of God issued a “Declaration of Defensive Action” signed by more than two dozen of Hill`s supporters, which states: “Any legitimate violence to defend the life of a born child is legitimate to defend the life of an unborn child. If Paul Hill really had nurse John Britton and clinical assistants James Barrett and Mrs. Barrett, his actions are morally justified if they were necessary to defend innocent human life.  [Note 3] The organization approves its designation as a terrorist.  The first abortion clinic in Florida was opened by Byllye Avery in Gainesville. The clinic had blue carpets, which comforted many women at the time, as they signaled that abortion would not be a bloody affair and required tiled floors that were easy to clean.  Between 1982 and 1992, the number of abortion clinics in the state decreased by seven, from 140 in 1982 to 133 in 1992.  In 2017, there were 65 abortion clinics in the state, and more than 73% of counties in the state do not have an abortion clinic.
In 2014, 20 percent of women ages 15 to 44 lived in a county without an abortion clinic.  In 2017, there were 22 family planning clinics, 13 of which offered abortion services. At that time, Florida had 4,404,228 women between the ages of 15 and 49.  False state information: Woman seeking abortion in Florida receives pamphlet containing false information February 14, 1972: The Florida Supreme Court overturns the state`s 103-year-old abortion ban. The U.S. Supreme Court recognized the constitutional right to abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973 and affirmed this right in subsequent decisions. “Deciding if, when and how we become parents is one of the deeply personal decisions we make. Every person, including all Floridians, should be free to make this decision without government interference. It`s a principle that has upheld the Florida Constitution for decades. No one should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term against their will and face the life-changing consequences of being denied basic health care. Unfortunately, this is the state envisioned by Governor Ron DeSantis and some Florida politicians.
The Florida Supreme Court has the power to block this dangerous law, and we hope it will defend the privacy rights of Floridians. In Florida, as of June 28, 2022, the following abortion restrictions were in effect: June 10, 2015: Governor Rick Scott signs a bill requiring women to make an additional visit to a facility that offers abortion counseling at least 24 hours before the scheduled procedure. Lawmakers had rejected amendments to the bill that would have caused the following: • In 2017, approximately 862,320 abortions took place in the United States. The resulting abortion rate of 13.5 abortions per 1,000 women of reproductive age (15-44 years) represents an 8% decrease from the rate of 14.6 in 2014.  “Florida`s devastating ban and countless abortion restrictions have put abortion care increasingly out of reach for our patients. Politicians have turned their backs on Floridians, but we hope the Florida Supreme Court will finally end the harm inflicted on pregnant women in the state. Our patients know what`s best for them and their families, and we will do everything in our power to protect access to abortion in Florida. In 2017, there were 1,587 facilities offering abortions in the United States, down 5 percent from 1,671 facilities in 2014. Sixteen percent of facilities in 2017 were abortion clinics (i.e., clinics where more than half of all patient visits were for an abortion), 35% were non-specialized clinics, 33% were hospitals, and 16% were private doctors` offices. Sixty percent of all abortions were performed in abortion clinics, 35 percent in non-specialized clinics, 3 percent in hospitals, and 1 percent in doctors` offices.  #StopTheBans was created in response to the passage of laws in six states in early 2019 that would almost completely ban abortion. The women wanted to protest this activity as other state lawmakers began considering similar bans in an attempt to overturn Roe v.
Wade. At least one #StopTheBans protest took place in the state.  The Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade in Dobbs v. Jackson Women`s Health Organization, No. 19-1392, 597 U.S. ___ (2022) later in 2022.   “Every day this abortion ban is in effect is another day when patients are forced to carry out pregnancies against their will or flee their home state to access basic health care. The lower courts` refusal to act puts real life at risk, especially for blacks and Latinos, low-income people, and people living in rural areas who already face immense barriers to accessing health care. Enough is enough. We hope that the Florida Supreme Court will act quickly to restore patients` right to access abortion treatment, as clearly guaranteed by the state constitution. Regardless of your race, zip code, or income, Planned Parenthood will never stop fighting for each person`s ability to make their own decisions about their bodies and their future without political interference.
Despite overwhelming opposition to the abortion ban among Florida voters and medical professionals, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB 5 earlier this year. Since it went into effect on July 1, the law has forced people to carry their pregnancies to term against their will, exposing them to the life-changing – and sometimes life-threatening – consequences of pregnancy. Every year, a wide range of people in the United States have abortions. In 2017, 862,320 abortions were performed in clinical settings in the United States. Since the legalization of abortion in 1972 in Florida and a year later in the United States with Roe v. Wade, a number of laws have directly affected access to essential health services, including abortion for women who are pregnant or likely to be pregnant. Here are some of them. Data shows that the majority of abortions in Florida take place before 15 weeks. A report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that about 2% of the nearly 72,000 abortions reported in Florida in 2019 were performed after 15 weeks.
In February 2009, Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacques Renelique had his license revoked by the Florida Medical Board. Renelique was also the subject of a criminal investigation against him by Florida`s attorney general over a 2006 incident alleging that a teenage girl was born during an abortion procedure in which staff at his clinic threw the creature into a garbage bag to cover up the events.  In 2011, Florida was one of six states where the legislature introduced legislation that would have banned nearly all forms of abortion, but it did not pass.  The law was reintroduced in the following years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.
