WASHINGTON (NEWSnet) — President Joe Biden is traveling to Florida on Tuesday to fight back against the state's six-week abortion ban.

It's his latest attempt to blame former President Donald Trump for the overturn of reproductive rights across the country.

Biden will deliver remarks on what he calls "reproductive freedom" in Tampa. Florida’s six-week abortion ban is poised to go into effect May 1.

Earlier this month, the Florida Supreme Court approved a state law that will restrict most abortions after the sixth week of pregnancy. 

It will be Biden's first major speech on abortion since Trump suggested that the issue be left to the states, rather than addressed through federal law.

Trump also insists he will not sign a national abortion ban if elected, reversing an earlier promise.
