Amid a legal battle about the future of abortion rights in Florida, more than 38,000 abortions were performed in the state during the first half of 2023, according to a newly posted report on the state Agency for Health Care Administration website.

The July 3 report said 38,244 abortions had been performed this year.

About one-third of the abortions were performed on residents of Miami-Dade and Broward counties, while 3,390 were performed on women from other states.

Florida lawmakers and Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2022, passed a law that prevented abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

They followed up this year by passing a measure aimed at preventing abortions after six weeks of pregnancy.

The six-week limit, however, is on hold as the Florida Supreme Court considers a constitutional challenge to the 15-week law.
