Religious groups go after Amendment 6
September 19 , 2012
TALLAHASSEE - With Catholic organizations from around the state cashing in to pass the anti-abortion Amendment 6 headed to voters in November, a coalition of religious groups is decrying the measure as a state-imposition of religious dogma.
Amendment 6 would restrict public dollars from funding abortions or health insurance that covers abortions except in areas covered by federal law; it also overrides Florida court decisions that have upheld broader privacy rights than the U.S. Constitution affords. Supporters say that would create an opening to push for broader parental-consent laws for minors seeking abortions. . . .
