Public policy in a pluralistic society must affirm the constitutional right to privacy of the individual and the freedom to make reproductive choices.
The League of Women Voters of Seminole County stands with the League of Women Voters of Florida supporting every woman’s right to access affordable, high-quality reproductive health care, including access to abortion services and birth control.
The League of Women Voters of Seminole County supports treating reproductive rights — including access to abortion — as a healthcare issue decidable by a woman and her qualified healthcare provider.
We advocate for comprehensive sex education in schools; increased access to publicly-funded family planning services; and information on sexually transmitted diseases and birth control. Through these efforts, Florida can decrease unintended pregnancies and improve health care outcomes for our families.
In addition, we support passage of the Equal Rights Amendment, which addresses gender inequality, gender-based violence, sexual violence and harassment, workplace discrimination, and pay parity.
