Salon profiled Florida's Amendment 6, one of the most controversial ballot measures facing approval from Florida voters Nov. 6.
The ballot item is aimed at removing a constitutional right to privacy currently in Florida's Constitution, but it also might cut abortion coverage in some cases for the state's public employees, Salon reports.
The amendment also has language that would prohibit the use of taxpayer money for abortions in the state.
In November, Floridians will decide whether or not to remove a state ban that prohibits the use of tax money for the funding of religious groups.
While the Catholic Church in the state remains one of the biggest proponents of this so-called “Religious Freedom” amendment, some religious leaders are weary of the measure.
Guillermo Marquez-Sterling, a pastor at the United Church of Christ in Coral Gables, says he’s concerned that, if Amendment 8 passes, if tax money could fund religious organizations, religious institutions like his will actually lose some of their freedom.
