According to the Guttmacher Institute, 519 abortion restrictions have been introduced in 41 states so far this year. During this year’s legislative session, Florida extremist lawmakers passed House Bill 5, (HB 5) a 15 week abortion ban. Our panelists will discuss HB 5, and the myriad of abortion bans state lawmakers are enacting across the country. These efforts to restrict an individuals decision about whether and when to have a child is a part of a coordinated attack as the U.S. Supreme Court has made it clear that our constitutional right to abortion is at greater risk than ever before.
Panelists include:
Kirk Bailey, political director, ACLU of Florida
-Lauren Brenzel, statewide organizing director, Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates
-Aurelie Colon Larrauri, Florida State policy advocate, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice
This event will also serve as the Florida Keys Chapter’s annual meeting.
