FL Abortion Ban Challenge Being Heard

A Florida judge is hearing arguments today aimed at blocking the state's law banning most abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

The ACLU and Planned Parenthood among other women's health care providers hoping for an injunction.

Caroline Mala Corbin with the University of Miami School of Law says the ban violates the Florida constitution which has an explicit right to privacy which the state Supreme Court has interpreted to protect abortions.

The law is set to go into effect Friday.
