and then we're going to change the rules so you people can't put forth ANY MORE of your amendments because, ya know, we know best - no matter what thousands of you voted!
So now the whole situation is returned back to the status quo BEFORE the whole ballot initiative was voted upon by FL voters? JIM CROW at work within the FL legislature and on the FSC. No other explanation. Apparently, poor folk of color are supposed to know their place in the South and this is a reminder from their oppressors. No matter if the People of FL voted otherwise.
The majority doesn’t win anymore. Only the corrupt repub’s.
GOP= GANG OF PUTIN....PREDATORS, PROFITEERS, POLLUTERS.
The parental consent for abortion bill is heading to the Senate floor after passing its final committee today. Today also marks the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. The irony is disheartening. ... See MoreSee Less
This legislation promotes the false idea that young people are not responsible enough to make decisions about their bodies, but they are responsible enough to become parents.
She probably fully supports the same girls having access to assault rifles ...
This is going to force young women to find another way. Catastrophic will follow this decision. Shame on you Kelli. You will have blood on your hands.
Republicans may they die out like the dinosaurs. Let’s vote them out!
meanwhile "Advocates for pregnant women inmates came to the state Capitol Tuesday to retell the traumatic story of Tammy Jackson, an inmate at the Broward County jail who was forced to give birth in an isolation cell. Jackson miraculously performed a seven-hour labor by herself without medical assistance or medication." This is "pro-life" or another assault on women - but let's start with the most vulnerable
The real issue is that not all daughters can talk to their parents about this, or will not. This is dooming them to back alley procedures.
Well the alimony reform bill also passed its first committee! It’s an anti-woman year. Please get the word out to stop this. It will leave older women homeless and destitute.
I suppose you don't see the irony in Norma McCorvey dying a Pro Life advocate
This is insane
Of the four people who spoke in support of the bill, three were men.
why anyone would want to commit murder is beyond me..even doctors are sworn to uphold life..not kill it..
I write this after every article. If these girls could talk to their parents they would have. The consequences of this bill are numerous, including fear of abuse by parents, hangars instead of doctors, suicides and other deaths due to illegal abortion, etc. Abortions are not going away. Roe vs. Wade needs to stay. Please use your brains and stop drinking the Kool-Aid. BTW, why do you think trump changed from pro-choice to pro-life? For votes maybe????????????
strip us of our rights and we will go underground.

Andrew Burnham I think you have a playlist fitting for this news 😡
We need a work around. We have to protect our bodies and our lives.
Providing access to free and low cost birth control would make abortion almost a moot issue.
Where Kelli goes, trouble follows. Her legislation does nothing but hurt people or help her...
No surprise there. And it will pass the other house as well and be signed into law. After all, it’s Florida.
The revamped clemency rule will allow felons who have waited at least seven years after they have completed their time behind bars and have fulfilled other requirements but owe restitution to victims to request a hearing from the clemency board. Under the current rules, restitution must be paid in f...
