North Florida Women’s Health And Counseling Services

Section 390.01115, Florida Statutes (1999), is entitled the Parental Notice of Abortion Act (the “Parental Notice Act,” or the “Act”). Because of concerns regarding the Act’s constitutionality, both the trial and district courts below barred its implementation. The Act never has been enforced. We have for review State v. North Florida Women’s Health & Counseling Services, 26 Fla. Law Weekly D419 (Fla. 1st DCA 2001), wherein the district court declared the Act valid. We have jurisdiction. See art. V, ยง 3(b)(3), Fla. Const. For reasons explained below, we quash North Florida and approve the trial court’s decision holding the Act unconstitutional under our controlling precedent in In re T.W., 551 So. 2d 1186 (Fla. 1989).
