PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Florida is the southern ground zero at the moment in the fight for the right to choose to terminate a pregnancy without more government restriction.
The state Supreme Court is currently weighing whether Florida’s 15-week abortion limit violates the state’s right to privacy.
If it stands, the newer 6-week limit will kick in.
Meanwhile, a group working to give Florida voters the say has met a milestone in the petition gathering process, tripping a judicial and financial review.
Anna Hochkammer is Vice Mayor of the village of Pinecrest and executive director of the Florida Women’s Freedom Coalition, the organization leading that citizens’ initiative.
Hochkammer joined This Week in South Florida host Glenna Milberg to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
