Senator Cruz decries extreme attacks on women’s reproductive freedom

Tallahassee —

“Being a mother is one of the great honors of my life,” said Senator Janet Cruz (D—Tampa).  “But, I know what it’s like to struggle as a young, working mom and I know that not everyone is ready for it. That is why I firmly believe that everyone should have the freedom and right to make private medical decisions – and that includes the decision to have an abortion, a decision which should be made between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her faith. This ban is unconstitutional and anti-American and we need to address the real issues facing Floridians, like housing affordability, rising taxes, and skyrocketing rent, among so many others, instead of wasting time on an attack on women’s health and freedom.”
