Breaking: DeSantis Suspends Rogue Florida Prosecutor Who Pledged Not to Enforce State Abortion Law

Republican Governor Ron DeSantis announced Thursday the suspension of rogue Hillsborough County State Attorney Andrew Warren, who pledged not to enforce a number of state laws including a 15-week abortion ban and prohibitions on sex changes for minors.

“Today we are suspending state attorney Andrew Warren effective immediately,” DeSantis declared.

Warren was one of 83 prosecutors nationwide who in the wake of the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe v. Wade signed a letter promising not to prosecute those who perform, abet, or seek abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy.

"This 15-week ban is an unconstitutional law. The Legislature is hoping courts ignore the Florida constitution. But I'm upholding the law and protecting the fundamental rights of all Floridians,” Warren said in a statement provided to the Tampa Bay Times.

“We are not going to allow this pathogen of ignoring the law get a foothold here in the state of Florida. We are going to make sure our enforced and that no individual prosecutor puts themselves above the law,” the governor said. “To take the position that you have veto power over the laws of this state is untenable.”
