Under a bill signed into law on Wednesday, Women seeking abortions in Florida must visit the clinic twice with a 24 hour waiting period in between to end a pregnancy.
Republican Governor Rick Scott signed the measure, passed this spring by the Republican-controlled state legislature without comment.
Republican state Representative Jennifer Sullivan sponsored the bill and said it would help women make more informed decisions. She added having an in person discussion with a doctor before ending a pregnancy is especially important because the abortion is irreversible.
Opponents to the bill said it would unnecessarily burden women by creating a stressful waiting period and additional expense.
The bill was amended to let doctors waive the waiting period in cases of rape, incest, domestic violence or human trafficking.
