NARAL Gives Florida an “F”

Somewhat contrary to the mid-level ranking given by Americans United for Life (AUL), the pro-abortion group NARAL Pro-Choice America gave Florida an “F” on abortion-related laws.  Their methodology is here.

One would have expected the two to provide mirror images on the same issue, resulting either in a higher ranking by AUL or a mid-level ranking by NARAL.  The North Carolina’s News & Observer noticed a similar incongruity in their home state.

The answer is that NARAL declined to grade on a curve.  The full scorecard shows that NARAL ranked Florida 28th.  It looks like NARAL simply decided to use the A-F scoring in order to give the “F” label to every state ranked below 25.
