Do Carlos Giménez And María Elvira Salazar Support Draconian Florida Abortion Law?

Late last night, the Florida House passed a draconian bill banning abortions after 15 weeks, while also voting down exceptions for extreme cases like rape and incest.

Carlos Giménez and María Elvira Salazar have sat back as attacks on reproductive rights and Roe v. Wade ramp up across the country, with Florida leading the way.

Last September, when the House of Representatives sought to protect abortion and reproductive healthcare through the Women’s Health Protection Act, Gimenez and Salazar voted “NO” on codifying Roe v. Wade protections.

Now that Florida is on the brink of unraveling reproductive rights, it’s time for Carlos Giménez and María Elvira Salazar to square with their constituents and announce whether or not they support this dangerous, regressive law that tears apart the medical rights of millions of Floridians.

DCCC Spokesperson Abel Iraola 

“Carlos Giménez and María Elvira Salazar are out of touch with Miami, South Florida, and all of America, where strong majorities support Roe v Wade protections that women have relied on for nearly half a century. As Republicans unravel decades of reproductive rights, Carlos Giménez and María Elvira Salazar should square with their constituents: do they stand for women’s individual and medical rights or do they believe every level of government should insert itself into their medical decisions?”
