ORLANDO, Fla. — A Central Florida lawmaker announced an initiative Tuesday to help women travel for out-of-state abortions.
State Sen. Randolph Bracy said the state plans to pay for travel expenses so women can access health care.
Bracy said the state may even consider paying for the procedure, in addition to travel expenses.
Lawmakers are still working out the details and raising the money.
Channel 9 also spoke with a pro-life group that says this initiative is a political stunt that won’t go far.
Right now, Florida law prohibits abortions after 15 weeks.
There are exceptions if the abortion is necessary to save the pregnant woman’s life or if the fetus has a fatal abnormality.
