CAMBRIDGE (FLV) – A recent poll found that 75% of women think their state should not allow abortions past 15 weeks, matching Florida’s 15-week abortion ban. 

The Harvard CAPS-Harris poll asked participates if their state should allow abortions up to 15 weeks or past the 23-week mark. 

About 75% of women and 69% of men supported not allowing abortions past 15 weeks.

When asked if abortions should be allowed at the 23 week-mark and after, 25% of women and 31% of men got behind that course of action. 

Florida’s new abortion ban prohibits abortions after 15 weeks in mot cases. The exception includes whether the mother’s life is in danger.

The survey was conducted online within the United States from June 28 to June 29 among 1,308 registered voters.

Even though the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Florida’s 15-week abortion legislation faces challenges in state court. Florida Circuit Court Judge John Cooper said the ban is unconstitutional because it violates the privacy provision in the Florida constitution.

Florida’s constitution recognizes a right to privacy. However, the DeSantis Administration appealed the decision. 

“The Florida Supreme Court previously misinterpreted Florida’s right to privacy as including a right to an abortion. We reject this interpretation because the Florida Constitution does not include–and has never included–a right to kill an innocent unborn child,” a spokesperson for the Governor said June 30.
