Missouri Must Keep Standing for the Unborn
March 20, 2023 | Missouri
Roe vs. Wade is no more! The landmark case before the Supreme Court that legalized abortion throughout the nation was overturned on June 24, 2022. In 2019 Missouri passed a law that would go into effect as soon as this decision happened. It’s called the Missouri Stands for the Unborn act, or as we like to refer to it, HB126; you can read more about that here: (HB126 Story). Because of this amazing piece of legislation, Missouri was the first state in the nation to outlaw abortion.
The fight to protect LIFE however, is NOT over! Just last week we were made aware of eleven petitions that have been filed with the Missouri Secretary of State to reinstate abortion in Missouri. These petitions cover everything from making abortion legal, to removing parental consent for minors seeking abortions, to preventing any criminal prosecution of those who perform abortions. We need your help! For the next fifteen days the Secretary of State has a public comment period on these petitions. We need to flood his office with comments on each petition.
