MEDIA ADVISORY: SFLAction Hosts Protection at Conception Lobby Day at State Capital, Calls on Legislators to Make Florida the Pro-Life Capital of America

“Florida legislators should waste no time taking up life-saving laws this session,” said Kristan Hawkins, SFLAction President. “With a Republican majority in a post-Roe America, there’s no reason that Florida shouldn’t be the pro-life capital of America. The state’s current limits only prevent 7% of abortions quickly turning the Sunshine State into the state of abortion tourism. We’re calling upon Senate President Passidomo and Speaker Renner to get Governor DeSantis pro-life legislation this year and protect the most innocent members of our society from the violence of abortion.”

TALLAHASSEE, FL (03-07-2023) – Today, Students for Life Action (SFLAction) will gather at Florida’s State Capital to call on legislators to take up life-saving legislation with the start of the new session. Starting at 1:00 PM EST, SFLAction will be joined by key pro-life leaders on the outdoor steps of the capital.

SFLAction has visited Senate President Kathleen Passidomo’s district office in Naples, Florida and plans on bringing the same message of protection at conception to Tallahassee with the start of a new legislative season. “It’s unacceptable to see 82,192 reported abortions in Florida from January 2022 to February 2023,” added Hawkins.

Hawkins, SFLAction student leaders, Florida Voice for the Unborn, and others will call upon Passidomo, Speaker Paul Renner, and their colleagues to #VoteProLifeFirst and allow greater protections that safeguard women and the preborn to be introduced this legislative session.

During their grassroots mobilization, SFLAction has sent 154,183 personal text messages, made 112,757 phone calls, and personally delivered more than 2,500 signed petitions.
