Pro-Life Report Card: Florida’s Congressional Delegation Shines

By Vaseline May31,2024

Students for Life Action (SFLAction) has released its second Pro-Life Generation Report Card about how Florida members of Congress voted on key pro-life votes, co-sponsored legislation and positions in defense of newborns.

SFLA says the state has 20 members US House of Representatives The delegation was excellent and received an A- for their voting record and sponsorship of bills. US Sens. Marco Rubio And Rick Scott were equally amazing, scoring A+’s for their work in defense of unborn life. However, the state’s overall average tanked by the Members of Congress from the Democratic Partywho had uniform F’s.

“The entire Democratic Party Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate have failed to protect Life, despite extensive polling showing that most Americans support abortion restrictions,” SFLA said.

The chairman of the group, Kristin Hawkins, says very few bills have been introduced that have involved outright votes to protect and defend unborn children and their mothers. But Hawkins is very optimistic that the GOP for Life campaign, currently underway, will show the difference between Republicans and Democrats on abortion.

“We call on Republican leadership across the country to uphold and defend a pro-life vision in the Republican Party platform. Pro-life voters demand more from their political leadership than a throwaway line,” Hawkins said.

SFLA talks about the big pro-life victory in the Sunshine State: The Supreme Court of the State of Florida held out with the state Heartbeat Protection Lawswhich were championed by SFLAction.

Florida’s pro-life community has made several victories over the years in advancing abortion restrictions, but SFLA notes that these victories could be reversed if the abortion vote passes in this year’s election referendum. “If passed, it could dramatically expand abortion in the state, allowing abortion up to birth,” SFLA said.

SFLAction and its sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), serve more than 1,400 groups at high schools, colleges, universities, medical and law schools across the country, with 46 student groups in Florida.
