ACTION ALERT: OccupyTally + Fast-Track Abortion Bills
| Action Alert!|
Final Votes Looming The Near Total Ban on Abortion( SB 300 / HB 7 ) The assault on healthcare choice continues with two bills in final stages of votes by the Florida legislature.
Here We Go Again! Call or email your elected senator and representative every day to express distress and disdain for this extreme overreach on personal and family rights. Rep. John Paul Temple, Sumter and part of Hernando county Rep. Jeff Holcomb, part of Hernando and Pasco counties Sen. Blaise Ingoglia, Citrus, Sumter, Hernando, and part of Pasco counties
Legislative intent– Ban abortions after six weeks of pregnancy. Dedicate $25 million in recurring funding to anti-abortion fake clinics where untrained volunteers or staff regularly give pregnant people medically inaccurate and potentially dangerous information about their pregnancies. Prohibit telehealth for abortion. Ban state funds from going to educational institutions or governmental entities that support out of state travel for an abortion
Talking points– Last year’s 15-week abortion ban with no exceptions for rape, incest, or human trafficking that is now being challenged as an unconstitutional violation of our right to privacy in the Florida Supreme Court. For decades, Republican lawmakers in Florida have sought to chip away at this right through targeted restrictions on abortion providers (TRAP) laws like waiting periods and enhanced regulations not applied to other health care providers.
Now, lawmakers have put these bills on the fast track.
Recent polling by PRRI found that 64% of Floridians and Americans believe abortion should be legal in most or all cases. This is about power and control. Anti-abortion politicians want to control our bodies, lives and futures so they can maintain their power.
‘Free States don’t ban Books. Free States don’t censor history. Free States don’t criminalize health care. Free States don’t weaponized government against free speech.
There is no freedom in government dictating what to read, what to say and who to be.’
