AMMENDMENT 4 UPDATED INFORMATION Brothers, This Fall, Florida voters will have a proposed Amendment 4 to the Florida State Constitution on the ballot. The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops (FCCB) website includes the following in describing the situation: “An extremely grave amendment has been placed on the November 2024 ballot that seeks to erase pro-life protections by inserting language into the Florida Constitution prohibiting regulation of abortion. The amendment would allow late-term abortions, including when the baby is capable of feeling pain, and would eliminate laws requiring parental consent and safety protocols for women. The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops is working hard to oppose this dangerous and deceptive amendment and urges all Floridians to vote "NO" on Amendment 4.” The Florida State KofC Council encourages Councils and Knights of Columbus members in Florida to actively support the Bishops’ call for a coordinated campaign to mobilize against the proposed amendment as outlined at https://www.floridakofc.org/Amendment-4-Action-Resources . Please ensure that you are well-informed regarding this proposed Amendment 4. The Political Action Committee (PAC) supported by the Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops has information including videos and other resources in English and Spanish on Amendment 4 at https://votenoon4florida.com/ Please review this website which was launched on July 1 st and the video currently there. Please also consider following “Vote No on 4” on their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/VoteNoOn4FL Please share information on Amendment 4 and its negative consequences with others and encourage them to register, if they are not already registered, and to vote. Vote-by-Mail ballot requests for domestic voters become available on September 26, 2024. Early voting will be from October 26 to November 2.
