WASHINGTON – Stakes are high in Florida as the state’s Supreme Court considers whether Floridians should get to vote on a new state measure enshrining abortion access in the state’s constitution.

This is one of several states where abortion could be on the ballot this November. Ultimately, the future of the abortion battle comes down to wording.

Supporters want to establish a state constitutional right to abortion while critics see it as a total deregulation of the procedure.

Before voters even see a ballot measure, however, state Supreme Court justices must approve the wording and both sides of the issue are weighing in.

Heated oral arguments on abortion access took center stage in the Florida Supreme Court this week on whether voters will see abortion on general election ballots in the form of the proposed state constitutional amendment.
