Reproductive rights are under attack in the Florida legislature, and have been ever since Republicans took over as a majority party. Personal medical decisions should be made by a woman and her doctor, not by politicians in Tallahassee or Washington. I oppose any legislation meant to restrict a woman’s constitutional right to access a safe and legal abortion.
To reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, Florida should replace abstinence-only sex education in our public schools with more practical and comprehensive curriculums. We should support women’s healthcare clinics and organizations such as Planned Parenthood that provide free or low-cost contraception to people who need it.
