Resistance to the New Florida Abortion Law


The arguments against limiting abortions are getting sillier and more illogical. Do you think the pro-abortion people are beginning to give up the fight? So what is the new abortion law (may be behind a paywall) that will be crossing Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk?—

It’s expected that same sex marriages will […]
