At Least Two Young Victims Of Incest Were Denied Abortions In Florida And Forced To Travel For Care, Planned Parenthood Said

Florida’s abortion ban prohibits the procedure after 15 weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest.

At least two children who were victims of incest have been denied abortions in Florida since the state instituted its 15-week ban in July, the local Planned Parenthood chapter told BuzzFeed News.

The GOP-controlled state legislature allowed exceptions to the 15-week ban in order to save the pregnant person’s life, prevent a serious injury, or if the fetus has a fatal abnormality. There are no exceptions for rape or incest, and violators of the law could face up to five years in prison.
