TALLAHASSEE  |  Miami’s Respect Life director joined Florida’s bishops this week in praising the legislature’s passage of a bill that would ban abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy, a bill that Gov. Ron DeSantis is expected to sign into law.

“Yes, we’re so excited!” wrote Rebecca Brady, archdiocesan Respect Life director, in an email shortly before lawmakers’ vote, March 3, 2022. “Our pregnancy help centers are ready to welcome all those affected by this law and help saves lives and souls, by the grace of God.”
