U.S. Rep. Castor Statement on Extreme Abortion Ban Upheld by Florida Supreme Court & Amendment 4 Abortion Rights Initiative

TAMPA, FL – U.S. Rep. Kathy Castor (FL-14) released the below statement following the Florida Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the extreme six-week abortion ban and Amendment 4 to allow Florida voters to decide the future of access to abortion care at the ballot box:

“Floridians must make their voices heard at the ballot box this November on the right to decide when and if to have children. Women and their families should make those personal decisions, not politicians. The Republican six-week abortion ban is extreme and cruel. Most women do not know they are pregnant at six weeks. Floridians can stand up for their rights and freedoms and reject the cruel and costly abortion ban and turn the tide on Gov. DeSantis and MAGA extremism.”
