Ever since he first ran for office, Rick Scott has pushed extremist policies — including a national abortion ban that criminalizes health care providers.

Time and time again, Scott has backed dangerous legislation that strips Floridians of their freedoms and forces the government into our private decisions.

Floridians across the state are tired of extremist politicians like Rick Scott attacking their fundamental rights to privacy and control over their bodies. This November, millions of Floridians are ready to stand up for freedom and vote Rick Scott out.

Rick Scott co-sponsored a national abortion ban in the Senate and supported Florida’s dangerous 6 week ban with hardly any exceptions.
