Down Ballot: No on Amendment 6

There is more at stake on November 6th than just the White House. No, I'm not talking about the Supreme Court, although that is a valid concern. I mean all the local ballot initiatives!

In Florida, Amendment 6 would ban state funds from covering abortion. This is far more than just the Hyde Amendment folks. This means state employees who get their health insurance from the state are at risk of losing their abortion coverage.

So don't stop voting after you select President Obama! Keep on going...check the back of the ballot too! Sometimes things are hiding there. And if you don't live in Florida, I bet you might know someone who does.
