Florida: Amendment 4

Amendment 4, The Right to Abortion Initiative, would provide a constitutional right to abortion before fetal viability (approximately 24 weeks) or when necessary to protect a patient’s health. If passed, the following language would be added to the Florida state constitution; "Except as provided in Article X, Section 22, no law shall prohibit, penalize, delay, or restrict abortion before viability or when necessary to protect the patient’s health, as determined by the patient’s healthcare provider."

According to Florida law, in order for this initiative to pass, it will need to receive a 60% vote from Florida voters. To learn more about this initiative and what will be on Florida’s ballot, visit Ballotpedia or contact your county’s supervisor of elections.
