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

Students for Life Action (SFLAction) released its second Pro-Life Generation Report Card on how Congressional members from Florida voted on key pro-life votes, legislation co-sponsorships, and stances in defense of the preborn.

SFLA says the state’s 20 member U.S. House of Representatives delegation was excellent, securing an A- for their voting record and bill sponsorship efforts. U.S. Sens. Marco Rubio and Rick Scott were equally great, scoring A+’s for their work defending preborn life. However, the state overall average was tanked by the Democrat Party Members of Congress, who uniformly had F’s.

“The entire Democratic Party Caucus in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate failed to protect Life, despite extensive polling indicating the most Americans support abortion limits,” said SFLA.

The group’s president, Kristan Hawkins, says there have been very few bills that are introduced that have involved straight up-and-down votes to protect and defend pre-born infants 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 the abortion issue.

“We are calling on Republican leadership across the country to maintain and defend a pro-life vision in the GOP party platform. Pro-life voters are asking more from their political leadership than a throwaway line,’ said Hawkins.

SFLA talks about the major pro-life win in the Sunshine State: The Florida State Supreme Court upheld the state’s Heartbeat Protection Laws, which were championed by SFLAction.

Florida’s pro-life community has seen several victories over the years promoting abortion restrictions, but SFLA notes that those victories could be undone if the abortion ballot in this year’s election referendum passes. “If passed, it could dramatically expand abortion in the state, allowing abortion up until birth,” said SFLA.

SFLAction and its sister organization, Students for Life of America (SFLA), serve more than 1,400 groups on middle, high school, college, medical, and law school campuses nationwide, with 46 student groups in Florida.
