Deceptive Abortion Amendment Will Appear on the Ballot

Apr 1, 2024

TALLAHASSEE, FL – Today, the Florida Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that a deceptive ballot initiative that proposes to codify unrestricted abortion in the state’s constitution may appear on the November ballot.

Now Floridians must defeat this deceptive amendment. This amendment is not about protecting women. In fact, this amendment will throw women into back-alley abortion butchers. The amendment is so broad that not even health or safety regulations will survive. Unscrupulous abortionists will be totally unregulated.

Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver stated, “This proposed abortion amendment is the most extreme because it will wipe out every law regulating abortion. Other than parental notification, no law will survive, not even health and safety regulations. We must mobilize Floridians to vote ‘No’ on this deceptive amendment.”

Staver and Florida Senior Deputy Solicitor for the Attorney General Nathan Forrester argued before the court’s seven justices that the amendment’s language was misleading, deceptive, and violated the single subject rule. Staver argued on behalf of Liberty Counsel and presented written argument to the Court that the amendment would also conflict with many existing laws which affirm that an “unborn child” or an “unborn person” has legal rights.
