The League of Women Voters of Florida supports every woman’s right to access affordable, high-quality reproductive health care, including access to abortion services and birth control. We affirm that public policy in a pluralistic society must affirm the constitutional right to privacy of the individual to make reproductive choices.
Key Issues Addressed:
- LWVFL supports treating abortion as a medical procedure to be decided upon by a woman and her physician.
- LWVFL promotes the prevention of unintended pregnancy through advocating for comprehensive sex education in schools and increased access to publicly-funded family planning information, services, and devices.
- In solidarity with our more than 50 organizational partners in the Floridians for Reproductive Freedom coalition, LWVFL actively opposes proposed restrictions to birth control and abortion.
