At this point, I think it’s safe to say Florida is no longer a “swing” state. The state has become redder and redder in recent years. It has a conservative governor, U.S. senators, and a Republican majority at the state level.
And this Republican majority is moving quickly to ensure conservative values are enshrined in the Sun Shine State.
Democrats will be very upset about the most recent news coming out of Florida. The conservative majority in its House and Senate just passed a major bill. Following in the footsteps of Texas, Mississippi, and other red states, Florida is poised to create the strictest pro-life policy the state has ever seen. And the governor is about to sign it.
From the Washington Examiner:
An abortion bill headed to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s desk is poised to become the strictest abortion ban in the state’s history.
Florida’s GOP-controlled Senate sent the bill, H.B. 5, to the governor on Thursday night in a 23-15 vote. DeSantis is expected to sign the measure that prohibits women from receiving an abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, without exemptions in cases of rape or incest.
Florida is about to sign into law a bill mirroring ones passed by Texas, Mississippi, and several other Republican states. This bill will ban abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy, with no exemptions for rape or incest. The bill is going to DeSantis’s desk, who is sure to sign it.
The bill will go into effect on July 1st. Of course, Democrats are outraged. Liberals have profited from this barbaric and outdated practice for years. Their goal of creating abortion on demand is less about “women’s rights” and more about lining their pockets.
The success of this bill is inspiring other states as well. Arizona and West Virginia are also considering similar bans. Others might join them after the Supreme Court rules on the laws out of Texas and Mississippi. How the court rules could allow more states to pass stricter abortion regulation—or even ban it outright.
It seems Democrats have a lot to worry about, these days.
- Florida’s Senate passed a bill banning abortion after 15 weeks.
- It is headed to the governor’s desk, who is likely to sign it.
- This comes as the Supreme Court could rule on state abortion regulation.
