Today, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) announced that a movement of pro-life Floridians, represented and led by FFPC President John Stemberger and co-sponsored by the Students for Life’s Defund Planned Parenthood Bus Tour will hold a major rally at the Florida State Capitol.
Three Florida cities are being confronted with proposed changes in local and county ordinances to include "non-discrimination" language (Sexual Orientation Gender Identity [SOGI] language) which create legal weapons to punish Christians who are simply living out their faith in their businesses and use of private property. Many of these SOGI laws also involve a gross invasion of privacy and create safety and security issues by allowing fully biological men to use women’s bathrooms. Don’t be fooled by smooth sounding names like “Human Rights Ordinances,” “Equal Rights Ordinances” and the latest deceptive name, the “Competitive Workforce Act.” Adding totally subjective terms like sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression to legitimate non-discrimination statutes directly undermines our First Amendment rights of religious liberty, free speech and freedom of association.
As Colorado becomes the latest state to consider ending taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC), led by President and General Counsel John Stemberger, is urging Governor Rick Scott to follow the lead of Pro-Life Governors across the country by blocking state and federal taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood in the State of Florida.
Tomorrow is the deadline to purchase tickets or table sponsorships for the Florida Family Policy Council's 2015 Tenth Anniversary Celebration, Annual Policy Awards Dinner in Orlando.
The pro-life community in the State of Florida is growing increasingly frustrated with Governor Rick Scott’s excuses for refusing to stop state taxpayer money from flowing to Planned Parenthood and are demanding he do so immediately.
