Texas Law Bans Abortion at 6 Weeks

S.B. 8 bans abortion after six weeks into a pregnancy — before most people even know they’re pregnant. It also creates a bounty hunting scheme that encourages the general public to bring costly and harassing lawsuits against anyone who they believe has violated the ban.

Learn what that means, how it could affect Florida, and what we can do to stop it.

The Law in Texas

With one of the most extreme abortion bans this country has ever seen now in effect, politicians, neighbors, and even complete strangers can sue anyone who helps a person access an abortion in Texas after six weeks. This is a full-scale assault on abortion access.

What does this mean for Florida?

Despite the dire situations in our schools and hospitals, Florida legislators immediately began making promises to introduce a 6-week abortion ban here. What’s worse, Gov. DeSantis and legislative leaders are indicating the bill will move.

Florida politicians don't fully appreciate the intensity with which this will be opposed by Floridians from all walks of life. This isn’t a partisan issue or one that just impacts a small subset of people. This is a direct attack not only on our personal freedoms but on our American way of life. Spying on your neighbors so you can turn them in to the government is not American but that’s what’s happened in Texas. And Florida will be next if we don’t stand up against this threat.

A majority of Floridians support Roe v. Wade and we will not tolerate this unconstitutional attack on our freedoms.
