More than 32,000 abortions have been reported in Florida this year, though a law that took effect May 1 is expected to dramatically decrease the number of abortions performed.

Newly posted data on the state Agency for Health Care Administration website showed 32,081 abortions had been reported as of June 3.

That was up from 22,409 reported at the beginning of May. The law that took effect May 1 prevents abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

Abortion providers are required to report data to the state 30 days after the end of each month, according to information on the Agency for Health Care Administration website.

That means the newly released data would continue to include abortions performed in April — before the six-week limit took effect.
