Statement By Senator Linda Stewart Regarding Florida Considering Texas-Style Abortion Bill

“Florida Republicans want to follow in Texas’ misguided footsteps and consider an intrusive and draconian restriction of women’s constitutional rights. This is a direct attack on reproductive rights by leaders who care more about politics than the health and wellbeing of women. That should make all of us willing to fight.

“I will be standing with everyone who wants to work against this legislation. We must be on the ground in our local areas and in Tallahassee. If Florida Republicans want to declare war on Florida’s women, we will be ready for the fight.”
