Reproductive freedom advocates to hold press conference on eve of near total abortion ban vote in Florida Senate
As extreme abortion restrictions are fast-tracked through the Legislature, Floridians will voice resistance to abortion bans.
TALLAHASSEE – On Wednesday, March 29 at 12:30pm, Progress Florida, Florida NOW (National Organization for Women), the League of Women Voters of Florida, and the National Council of Jewish Women, along with other partners, will host a press conference at the State Capitol.
“Florida Senate President Kathleen Passidomo has expressed her opposition to these extreme bans,” said Debbie Deland, President of Florida NOW. “As a woman leading the Florida Senate, she must step up to ensure Floridians have access to the full spectrum of reproductive health care and of course that includes abortion.”
“Florida legislators are seeking to control our very bodies, lives, and futures. We stand with the majority of Floridians who oppose politicians interfering in the most private and personal medical decisions best left between a woman in consultation with her family, and her faith,” said Amy Weintraub, Progress Florida’s Reproductive Freedom Program Director.
