Representative Saunders, Don't Abandon Women!
We urge Representative Ron Saunders, Leader of the Florida House Democratic Caucus, to stand with the women of Florida whose reproductive rights are under unprecedented attack, and to strongly encourage his Caucus members to do the same.
Why is this important?
Recently Representative Ron Saunders, Leader of the Florida House Democratic Caucus, made the following statement regarding Representative Daphne Campbell’s anti-choice votes in the Florida House:
“The abortion issue is deeply personal and emotional. The Florida House Democratic Caucus did not take a position on any abortion bills and all members, including Representative Campbell, were free to vote any way that they wished on those bills."
This statement is UNACCEPTABLE to the women, men, and organizations, across political party lines, who support comprehensive women’s health care and the Constitutional right for women to choose to have an abortion. And it is even more outrageous because it was made by a leader of the Democratic Party, the party whose national platform strongly supports choice and access to reproductive health services.
