Florida’s 6-Week Abortion Ban Goes Into Effect May 1, Here’s What You Need To Know

As of May 1, the new 6-week abortion law will go into effect, and Options for Women will continue to provide pre-abortion care to our patients. We know there is a lot of fear and miscommunication surrounding this new law. Let’s get the facts straight. The law prohibits abortions after six weeks gestation, with exceptions for women who are victims of rape, incest, human trafficking, or whose baby has a diagnosis of a fatal fetal abnormality. The most effective way to confirm the gestational age of your pregnancy is to have an ultrasound. At Options for Women, we offer free, early ultrasounds to determine how far along you are.
