Florida’s Republican attorney general will oppose abortion rights amendment if it makes ballot

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s Republican attorney general will oppose a proposed amendment protecting the right to an abortion if it makes next year’s ballot. Attorney General Ashley Moody didn’t tell the state Supreme Court why she’ll oppose it. She notified justices Monday that a petition has reached enough signatures to trigger a language review. A group called Floridians Protecting Freedom has gathered just more than 400,000 of the nearly 900,000 voter signatures it needs to make the ballot. It requires the Supreme Court to make sure the ballot language isn’t misleading and applies to a single subject.
