Extremists in the Florida Legislature are once again pushing more anti-abortion propaganda on the public dime. House Bill 415 and Senate Bill 436 would require the Florida Department of Health to create a website using a third-party vendor that features anti-abortion pregnancy centers.
The bill is sponsored by none other than Senator Erin Grall (R- Ft. Pierce) who also sponsored last year’s six-week abortion ban, and Rep. Berny Jacques (R-Clearwater).
Let’s work together to resist more resources going to promote the shame and stigma doled out by anti-abortion centers.
Phone script or email template to use when communicating with legislators (You’re encouraged to add your personal stories & values):
Hi Representative / Senator (___), My name is __________ and I’m a (parent/activist/student/community member/constituent) asking you to vote NO on HB 415/ SB 436.
This bill would require the Florida Department of Health to create a website using a third-party vendor featuring anti-abortion pregnancy centers.
Floridians are looking for freedom to make personal medical decisions without interference from politicians — not a taxpayer funded website featuring anti-abortion centers. Less than a year after passing a six-week abortion ban, a new website will not restore freedoms to the 4 million people of reproductive age who may soon need to leave their home state to access the health care they need.
Decisions around pregnancy are deeply personal, and Floridians deserve access to all their options, not a narrowly curated list designed by extremist politicians.
Again, please vote NO on HB 415/ SB 436 to ensure Floridians have access to all of their options.
