CFC Supports Human Life Protection Amendment

cfcAs the deep-pocketed abortion industry and its allies push to enshrine abortion on demand into the Florida Constitution through a multimillion-dollar ballot initiative campaign, Christian Family Coalition (CFC) Florida has announced its support for the competing Human Life Protection Amendment citizens’ petition effort.

CFC Florida Founder and Executive Director Anthony Verdugo said in an email, “The ballot initiative campaign launched last month by Planned Parenthood, the ACLU and other organizations seeks to reverse all the gains made by the pro-life movement in Florida over the last several years. Not only would their pro-abortion amendment repeal the recently signed Heartbeat Protection Act to ban most abortions after six weeks, but also last year’s 15-week abortion ban. It also would nullify Florida’s parental consent requirement and 24-hour waiting period to obtain an abortion. The deceptively worded pro-abortion ballot initiative would allow any abortion up to ‘viability,’ which has been interpreted as 24 weeks, but the proposal also adds a “health” exception for abortions at any stage of a pregnancy. By including a “health” exception, which has been broadly interpreted by the courts to justify abortion for virtually any reason including depression and anxiety, and by leaving that definition up to the abortionist, the ballot language opens the door to legalized abortion on demand during all nine months of pregnancy. We agree with the organizers of the Human Life Protection Amendment ballot initiative that the best defense is a good offense. That is why we wholeheartedly support placing the Human Life Protection Amendment on Florida’s November 2024 ballot to recognize the God-given right to life of every preborn child, and we strongly urge all Floridians to sign the petition and support it at the ballot box.”

The Human Life Protection Amendment petition initiative needs to secure almost 900,000 signed and validated petitions from registered voters across the state of Florida by Feb. 1, 2024, in order to qualify for the November 2024 ballot. Visit for more information.
