Florida's abortion waiting period back in court


Florida's abortion waiting period back in court
Tampabay.com

In documents filed with the court, lawyers for Gainesville Woman Care, an abortion clinic that launched the legal challenge along with the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and others, argued that the Supreme Court's ruling made clear the statute should be struck down permanently."No mandatory abortion delay in this country has ever survived strict scrutiny, and Florida's explicit right to privacy --- which is `as strong as possible,' --- will not tolerate a different result," the lawyers wrote June 1 in a request for summary judgment in the case.But lawyers for the state asked the judge to table the motion for summary judgment indefinitely to give them more time to prove their case.The state "must be afforded a full and fair opportunity to canvas applicable relevant literature, to consult with and retain experts as needed and appropriate, to seek discovery from plaintiffs and their experts as well as from third parties, and to marshal and present relevant facts in the context of relevant law," lawyers representing the state wrote in a brief filed late last month.
