JCPA joined NCJW’s amicus brief in Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida on behalf of itself, its staff, and its patients, et al. v. State of Florida, et al. arguing against Florida’s House Bill 5. The brief argues that there are many different religious beliefs about when life begins, as well as that Florida’s state constitution has an express right of privacy that provides broad protection for privacy rights, including the right of have an abortion, independent of federal law. Even under the new legal landscape post-Dobbs, Florida’s House Bill 5 is unconstitutional under Florida’s state constitution. Click here to read the full brief.
