Florida Amendment 6

In 2012, Florida voters rejected anti-choice Amendment 6. NARAL Pro-Choice America stood with No On 6 to oppose this dangerous measure.

Women should be able to make personal health-care decisions without the interference of the government. But Amendment 6 was deeply flawed and would have allowed politicians to put a woman’s health in danger.

If passed, Amendment 6 would have banned insurance coverage for abortion care with no exception if a woman’s health is threatened – even if she were battling a serious illness like cancer. It also would have limited reproductive-health-care coverage for women who are public employees in Florida – like teachers, police officers, and nurses.

Amendment 6 would have been a bad policy for Floridian women. Florida voters recognized that they did not need politicians in Tallahassee and the government interfering with women’s personal health-care decisions.
