How Florida’s 2022 elections could be impacted by voters concerned about abortion access

Roe vs. Wade demonstration

Share this:

In June, the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned the constitutional right to abortion.

Since then, several states have passed restrictions on abortion procedures.

That has inspired people in Florida and elsewhere to consider how officials running for office may affect access to abortion.

WMNF’s Tuesday Café host Seán Kinane interviewed Amy Weintraub, the Reproductive Rights Program Director at Progress Florida.
