My question involves public health law in the State of: Florida
Is there an age requirement for a 24 year old woman to have tubal ligation performed if she already has one child (approx. 1 y/o)?
I know of women who have been denied from having the procedure performed on them due to a supposed "law" that says women have to wait until approx. 30 years old to have this procedure done. I understand the various reasons why a doctor would be hesitant to fulfill a request of this nature to a young woman. However, I have been unable to come across this "law" which is said to prohibit women from having this procedure performed until at least 30 years of age.
Thank you in advance for your help!
