Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Slams Florida Republicans’ Total Abortion Ban Proposal

Florida Republicans Continue To Push Their Radical Agenda With A Total Abortion Ban

Floridians Across The Political Spectrum Are Ready To Hold Rick Scott Accountable For His Extreme Anti-Choice Agenda

Rick Scott Recently Doubled Down On His Dangerous Stance And Minimized Abortion As A “Tough Issue For Women”

Miami, FL – Less than a year after DeSantis signed Florida’s radical six-week abortion ban into law with the unwavering support of Rick Scott, Florida Republicans are introducing an even more extreme total ban on abortion.

“The Florida Republican Party is in an extremist race to the bottom — and Rick Scott is right with them in the lead,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Just last week, Scott doubled down on his radical stance supporting a national abortion ban and undermining women’s fundamental rights as a ‘tough issue.’ Rick Scott and Republicans have proven there’s no line they won’t cross in their fight to take away our freedoms. Floridians won’t stand for it, and neither will I.”

Rick Scott has a long record of supporting dangerous national and statewide abortion bans:

  • In addition to co-sponsoring a national abortion ban, Rick Scott expressed support for “abortion restrictions at the federal level.” (NBC News, 10/02/22]
  • Rick Scott on 6-week abortion ban: “If I was still governor, I would sign this bill.” [The Hill, 04/13/23]
  • Rick Scott doubled down on his dangerous anti-abortion record and said he is “going to be unabashedly pro-life and pro-baby.” [The Hill, 01/05/24]
  • Rick Scott minimized the issue of abortion as “a tough issue for women” [The Hill, 01/05/24]
