A new poll out of Florida has the pro-abortion lobby sweating bullets about the November ballot initiative

Abortion is on the ballot this fall in several states across the country.

Florida is one state where the Left is making an all-out push to codify abortion-on-demand into law.

But a new poll out of Florida has the pro-abortion lobby sweating bullets about the November ballot initiative.

After the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June of 2022, Ron DeSantis signed a bill into law that bans abortions after six weeks of pregnancy in the Sunshine State.

But Florida is a state that allows ballot initiatives if citizens gather the required number of signatures on a petition.

In order to place an initiative on the ballot, an organization must collect over 890,000 signatures – roughly 8% of the population – from Floridians.

The group Floridians Protecting Freedom turned in over 1.4 million signatures and successfully placed an initiative on the ballot this fall that will codify abortion into state law.

“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,” the abortion measure reads. “This amendment does not change the Legislature’s constitutional authority to require notification to a parent or guardian before a minor has an abortion.”

As Florida Voice for the Unborn Founder and Executive Director Andrew Shirvell noted, the amendment would “legalize abortion up until the moment of birth for just about any reason and there’s pretty much nothing that the legislature or the governor or any of our governmental entities could do to interfere with that so-called super state-charged constitutional right.”

The initiative requires 60 percent of the vote in order to succeed.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently predicted that the amendment would fail to meet this threshold in November.

“Once voters figure out how radical both of those are, they’re going to fail,” he said in reference to the abortion initiative as well as one that would legalize cannabis. “They’re very, very extreme.”

And according to a new USA Today/Ipsos poll, DeSantis will be proven correct if voter sentiment remains the same in November as it is today.

The poll found 57 percent of Floridians support codifying abortion-on-demand into state law, which is three percent shy of the required 60 percent.

But only half of the respondents were familiar with the ballot initiative.

Of course, the Abortion Lobby will spend tens of millions of dollars over the next few months to try and convince enough Floridians to support the initiative this fall.

That’s why it’s critical for Pro-Life votes in Florida to not only make sure they vote, but to also knock on doors and ask their neighbors to join them in voting for life by voting ‘No’ in November.
