TALLAHASSEE, FL – The bishops of Florida commend our state's legislative leaders for advancing the protection of our most vulnerable, the unborn, by restricting abortions once a child has reached viability. We are called to care for life from its earliest stages, recognizing and respecting the sacredness of what God has created. Restricting abortion from the point of viability is a significant improvement for Florida. The bill recognizes the right to life of children who can survive outside of the womb.
