The pro-life movement in Florida is currently engaged in the toughest battle for life in recent history! Planned Parenthood and the ACLU have formed an alliance to introduce a radical anti-life amendment to change the Florida Constitution. If passed, this amendment would unravel our recent successes and strip away protections for women and unborn babies in Florida.
It is evident that Planned Parenthood, driven by the profits it makes from abortion, is unwilling to tolerate any threat to its financial gain. Hence, they are attempting to establish a so-called right-to-abortion in Florida's constitution, safeguarding their lucrative abortion business.
Please...if someone presents a petition DECLINE TO SIGN it. We are unwavering in our commitment to fight against this deceitful abortion amendment and will utilize every pro-life resource to ensure its defeat.
What you can do to help us prevent the pro-abortion organizations from successfully gathering petition forms:
1. Do NOT sign the anti-life petition: urge everyone you know not to sign these petitions. See “Why the amendment is deceptive" below.
2. Peaceful intervention: when you come across gatherings of individuals collecting petition signatures to support this anti-life amendment, peacefully intervene. Stand near the table and kindly request that people not sign the petition, explaining why the language in this amendment is deceptive.
3. Pray Action for Life: lift us up in prayer, seeking divine guidance and strength to defeat this amendment. Your prayers are essential to our pro-life work.
4. Write letters to local newspapers: In your own words, write a letter exposing the deceitfulness and dangers of the amendment language. Write about the danger of taking away the parental consent law and the potential for unrestricted abortions.
Here is WHY the amendment language is deceptive...
The language of the Ballot Summary and the Full Text are purposely vague and ill-defined. The Ballot Summary and Full Text are as follows:
Ballot Summary: No law shall prohibit, penalize, delay, or restrict abortion before viability or when necessary to protect the patients’ health, as determined by the patients’ health care provider. This amendment does not change the Legislature’s constitutional authority to require notification to a parent or guardian before a minor has an abortion.
Full Text of the Proposed Amendment:
Limiting Government interference with abortion – Except as provided in Article X, Section 22, no law shall prohibit, penalize, delay, or restrict abortion before viability or when necessary to protect the patients’ health, as determined by the patients’ healthcare provider.
Clearly, this amendment is deceptively worded and vague. This purposeful and designed to sugarcoat the ugly truth about how this amendment would undo all that has been accomplished to protect pre-born babies in Florida.
There is absolutely zero concern for the pre-born baby, the baby is never considered.This amendment, if passed, would legalize abortion through birth. This is why we must stop this deceptive and potentially harmful effort now.
