Florida's 2021 Legislative Session

Your one stop source for updates and information on the reproductive health care fights happening in the state's capitol.

Post-Session Report

While we knew this legislative session was going to be hostile for reproductive rights and unprecedented because of COVID-19, that did not stop us from fighting against multiple attempts to restrict access to safe and legal abortion. Planned Parenthood will always fight to ensure that access to reproductive health care is defended – and the 2021 legislative session was no different.

We deeply believe in the rights of all people — no matter who they are, where they live, or what they earn — to make their own personal decisions about their bodies, their families, and their life’s path, without political interference.

This year, with the support of coalition partners and through grassroots efforts, the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood affiliates successfully defeated all four bills that attempted to restrict access to reproductive health care!

ISSUES AND BILLS TO WATCH

SB 410/HB 545

RESTRICTING ACCESS TO SEX ED

This bill would create a barrier to giving young people the access to education they need and would decrease the number of young people in Florida receiving sex ed at a critical point in their lives.

HB 351/SB 744

20-WEEK ABORTION BAN

HB 351 and SB 744 are rooted in opposition to safe and legal abortion and not credible medical evidence.

HB 1437 / SB 1984

FETAL TISSUE DISPOSAL

This bill  stigmatizes abortion providers and the patients that rely on these clinics for necessary reproductive health care.
