The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Tuesday in a case that will determine whether women seeking an abortion must take an extra 24 hours to consider their decision after meeting with an abortionist.
Immediately after Gov. Rick Scott signed the law on June 10, 2015, the ACLU and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed suit on behalf of a Gainesville abortion facility, Bread and Roses, claiming the 24-hour waiting period fettered abortion access.
