REBECCA STEELE, Director, ACLU, West Central Florida will talk about constitutional amendments on the November 2nd ballot. Of special interest is Amendment 1 dealing with Parental Notification of a Minor's Termination of Pregnancy. The ACLU joined with other organizations to file suit protesting the confusing language of this amendment. The Florida constitution currently gives Floridians greater privacy rights than the federal constitution. Becky reviews Amendment 1 this week and covers the other 7 amendments.
