Florida women pay the price when abortion opponents turn lies into laws. Health care is pushed out of reach, doctors are told how to practice medicine, and women are denied the ability to make their own decisions. These laws shame, pressure, and punish women while violating rights in the process. Learn more and take action to protect abortion rights today.
I support abortion rights for all Floridians and oppose efforts to create barriers to affordable, accessible abortion care.
For too long, Florida policymakers have enacted obstacle after obstacle to prevent women from exercising their reproductive rights. Whether it’s arbitrarily contrived waiting periods, burdensome requirements on abortion clinics, patients and their doctors, or efforts to defund organizations that provide abortion care, enough is enough.
These restrictions are medically unnecessary and designed only to restrict access to abortion care and shame women. I stand with Florida women and for reproductive rights for all Floridians.
The Florida Legislature has enacted a gauntlet of restrictions that seek to shame, pressure and punish women, and block access to abortion care. For example:
A recent analysis by the National Partnership for Women & Families and Progress Florida Education Institute of abortion restrictions introduced in the Florida Legislature in 2016 found that 64% of the abortion restrictions introduced in the Florida Legislature were based on lies about abortion safety and the trusted health care professionals who provide abortion care; and 100% of the abortion restrictions introduced share the same goals: restrict access to abortion care and shame women.
A large majority of people agree that when politicians turn lies into laws, it's bad medicine and bad policy. A 2016 nationwide survey conducted by the National Institute for Reproductive Health asked voters about their views on abortion policy. More than 7 in 10 voters want a woman’s experience having an abortion to be respectful, supportive, affordable, available in her community, and without pressure.
