Florida Voters Defeat Anti-Abortion Measure

lorida's Amendment 6, which would have banned state funding for abortions, was defeated in Tuesday's election. The Associated Press and Orlando Sentinel reported the amendment did not come close to the 60 percent needed to pass, getting only 45 percent support.

Had it passed, the law would have also allowed the state to implement tighter parental-consent laws. According to the AP, the state already provided no funding for abortions.
