Florida Democratic Party Reacts to Reaching Abortion Petition Goal Early

FDP Chair Nikki Fried says momentum shows ‘Floridians want their freedom back

Floridians Protecting Freedom announced that the coalition organizing to get reproductive rights on the 2024 ballot in Florida will submit 1.4 million petitions to the state. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement: 

“Floridians want their freedom back,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “Initiatives to protect reproductive rights have won on every ballot since the fall of Roe v. Wade — and Florida is next. We can feel the momentum as the coalition exceeds their goal and prepares to submit over 1.4 million petitions early. 

“This proves that Florida is not ‘too big’, ‘too hard’ or ‘too expensive’ to invest in. We have the people power on the ground who believe that Florida is worth fighting for — but the fight is not over. 

“Attorney General Ashley Moody has already tried to stop the abortion amendment from getting on the ballot in 2024, asking the Florida Supreme Court to block it. Ashley’s addiction to power has made her ignore the voices of Floridians, and these petitions prove it. Florida Democrats stand ready to fight back against any attempt to block the will of the people on reproductive rights.”
