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:

  1. LWVFL supports treating abortion as a medical procedure to be decided upon by a woman and her physician.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
