State Supreme Court Issues Massive Ruling – Triggers 1 New Law Liberals Will Hate

It’s no surprise that a major legal battle is taking place in the red state of Florida. Conservative Gov. DeSantis has spent his second term in office pushing strong legislation. Some of it has struck down major liberal holy grails.

He shut down transgenderism propaganda in schools. He ended Disney’s monopoly in the state. And he passed a law in 2022 that protected unborn life.

Democrats tried to challenge a top piece of legislation, taking it to the state Supreme Court. A major liberal organization was continuing a campaign is has led in many red states. But, the court just issued a ruling—which will trigger another law that Democrats won’t be able to stand.

From The Post Millennial:
A 6-week abortion ban is to take effect in Florida after a pro-life ruling came down from the state’s supreme court on Monday…

“Based on our analysis finding no clear right to abortion embodied within the Privacy Clause, Planned Parenthood cannot overcome the presumption of constitutionality and is unable to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that the 15-week ban is unconstitutional.”

The Florida Supreme Court ruled against Planned Parenthood over a 15-week abortion ban in Florida. With that victory, another bill—which was signed a year later—will take effect one month later.

That bill bans abortion in Florida after six weeks, which is often considered the time a heartbeat is detected.

The court’s decision appears to mirror the 2021 ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court, which struck down Roe v. Wade. The Florida court decided that the Bill of Rights does not provide a “clear right to abortion.”

The court ruled that Planned Parenthood “cannot overcome the presumption of constitutionality” and could not convince the court that the state’s ban was unconstitutional.

This comes after the U.S. Supreme Court originally decided that states, not the federal government, had the right to pass abortion legislation. Many conservative-led states quickly passed restrictions or outright bans. This has provoked abortion activists, including most Democrats, to challenge laws and circumvent the states’ rights.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Florida Supreme Court upheld a 15-week abortion ban.
  • This ruling will trigger another law, which will ban abortion after 6 weeks.
  • The court decided Planned Parenthood could not prove a “clear right” to abortion in the Constitution.
