24 Hour Wait For Abortion Passes FL House

The Republican-controlled Florida House has passed a controversial abortion bill 77-41 that forces females to make two trips to a clinic for the procedure.

The first visit would be a consultation followed by a 24 hour waiting period before going ahead with the procedure.

A female can get the day-long wait waived by presenting document evidence that she is the victim of rape, incest, or human trafficking.

A similar bill is being debated in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Democrats, who are against abortion restrictions, say if the bill becomes law, it will be struck down by the courts.
