The U.S. District Court in Tallahassee sided with Planned Parenthood Thursday, according to a press release from the organization. The judge decided to put a temporary injunction preventing parts of HB 1411 from taking effect.
That bill is defined as “Termination of Pregnancies; Revising the requirements for disposal of fetal remains; revising the criminal punishment for failure to properly dispose of fetal remains; requiring the Agency for Health Care Administration to develop and enforce rules relating to license inspections and investigations of certain clinics; requiring certain organizations that provide abortion referral services or abortion counseling services to register with the agency, pay a specified fee, and include certain information in advertisements, etc.”
Planned Parenthood said it “would have eliminated access to birth control, cancer screenings, STD tests and other care for thousands of patients at Planned Parenthood health centers in Florida.”
