We sent an alert out on this bill last week. Unfortunately it passed favorably from that committee on a 4-2 vote. We can try to stop it again this week in the Appropriations Committee, its last stop before a floor vote.
Please call Republican members of the Senate Appropriations Committee ASAP. The bill will be heard this Thursday, January 18th from 4pm - 6pm. Ask them to vote NO on spending taxpayers dollars for anti-abortion propraganda.
This bill would codify the funding of fake medical clinics that give women inaccurate information about pregnancy and abortion.
The Constitution Revision Commission will meet this week in Orlando. This commission is making decisions now on the Constitutional amendments that will appear on our ballots in November. There are critical votes on two terrible proposals that we must fight against.
Proposal 4 - Reverses the current ban on tax dollars being used to fund religious institutions and causes.
Proposal 22 - Amends the Constitution to limit the rights of privacy "only to information and the disclosure thereof." This amendment would take away our right to privacy and open the door to further government intrusion into our bedrooms.
