Kamala Harris Visits Florida as Abortion Ban Kicks Off

Following the abortion ban in Florida and Arizona, US Vice President, Kamala Harris has visited an abortion clinic in Florida.

Harris has pushed for reproductive freedom in more than 20 states.

“We believe the government should never come between her and her doctor. Never,” she said.

Abortion access is now almost non-existent in southern U.S. states. Abortion seekers had previously been able to have the procedure don in Florida until the April ban was passed.

According to state data, in 2023, about 7,700 of some 84,000 abortions performed in Florida were for out-of-state residents, nearly 60% higher than two years earlier.

About half of the state’s 50 clinics operate independently from larger groups such as Planned Parenthood.
