WATCH LIVE: Planned Parenthood among providers disputing Florida abortion ban

(Local10News) TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Planned Parenthood of South, East, and North Florida and other reproductive health care providers are challenging Florida’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks of pregnancy on Monday at a state court in Tallahassee.

Attorneys representing Planned Parenthood argued in front of Leon County Circuit Judge John C. Cooper that the ban violates the privacy rights that are protected by the state’s constitution.

House Bill 5, which Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law in April, reduces the existing 24-week ban starting on Friday. The new law doesn’t include exceptions for rape, incest, or human trafficking.

1. One thing about this judge John Cooper....

he ruled against DeSantis last year when he tried to withhold funding from school districts that required masks because he felt that would violate a separation of powers statute. I don't know how this one is going to go - but fingers crossed....

4. In the meantime

I'm trying to stay positive. In the short-term, it'll probably look like a loss for us if the judge grants the injunction because the state will appeal, and be given an automatic stay of the lower court's decision on appeal (effectively meaning the law goes into effect). After that, the real battle begins. That's how I see this playing out but I could be wrong.
