This legislation is just the first step in a much larger and more alarming plan to overturn Florida’s unique privacy protections that prevent politicians from interfering in decisions made between a patient and their doctor.
Most young people involve at least one parent in their abortion decision, those who don’t often have good reason not to. Forcing them to go before a judge, who could decide they’re not mature enough to access an abortion but are mature enough to have a child, delays access, which leads to more invasive, expensive and harder to access later-term abortions.
It’s clear this bill is a risk to our reproductive health and privacy rights. That’s why we’re coordinating the effort to bring hundreds of supporters like you to the Capitol! You being there could make all the difference in preserving Florida as a bastion of reproductive health care access in the South.
