Those in Florida who oppose Sen. Lauren Book's controversial measure are speaking out.
On Wednesday, President of Florida Right to Life Lynda Bell responded to Book's proposed bill calling for a constitutional amendment that would prohibit the Florida House of Representatives and Senate from voting on a bill that would affect access to abortions unless women legislators were equally represented.
“Lauren Book has become so radical that she wants to eliminate the constitution and clearly doesn’t understand Representative government," Bell told The Florida Report. "Her bill would halt the voice of every person -- women included -- who happened to vote for a man!"
If successful, Book's bill would undermine the electoral and legislative process in Florida, and attempt to artificially circumvent the way legislators enact and vote on legislation in the Sunshine State.
