Florida Gov Signs Law Banning Funds to Abortion Clinics

Planned Parenthood is not happy.  Florida Governor Rick Scott signed 68 new laws on Friday – one will cut off all state funding for services to clinics who provide abortions.  The law takes effective July 1, 2016.

The bill, which easily passed the Republican-controlled legislature earlier this month, has been the target of television advertisements by Planned Parenthood and protests at the Capitol by women urging a veto.

State funding of abortion was already prohibited, but the new law also blocks money for services for low-income women at the clinics.   It also requires doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital – a type of formal affiliation that can be difficult to obtain – within a “reasonable” distance of clinics.

In addition, the law requires annual inspection of clinics by health authorities and tightened rules on disposal of aborted fetal tissue.

Another Florida law passed last year, requiring women to wait 24 hours before getting an abortion, recently took effect and faces a continued legal challenge.
