Urgent Call to Action! Three Weeks until the End of the 2017 Missouri Legislative Session

by | Apr 20, 2017

Calls and e-mails are needed to your Missouri State Senators in these last 3 weeks of the 2017 session to “Pass Pro-Life Legislation.” Session ends on Friday, May 12 at 6:00 p.m.

We thank our Legislators for directing some state monies for some great pro-life programs to help women in crisis pregnancies and protecting our tax dollars from going for human cloning, embryonic stem cell research and abortion services in the budget bills! Budget bills are still in process so the final versions are not done yet.

In these last 3 weeks of session, we need pro-life elected officials to step up and defend our religious liberties and public policies that protect women and babies by passing the protections in HCS HB 174/SB 41 AND HCS HB 194/SB 67.

Please call your State Senator and ask him/her to pass the following bills. Pro-life laws & religious liberty freedoms are intentionally being attacked by a pro-abortion Judge and pro-abortion officials on the St Louis City Council.

Pass HCS HB 174 or SB 41 to Stop the “Sanctuary City for Abortion Mandate”:

In HCS HB 174 and SB 41, a political subdivision of this state is preempted from enacting, adopting, or enforcing any ordinance or any other form of regulation that would interfere with, or otherwise adversely affect an alternatives-to-abortion agency or any other religious organization and their agents’ operations or speech.

HCS HB 174 or SB 41 is necessary because an ordinance was passed by the Board of Aldermen in the City of St. Louis that attacks and threatens the deeply held moral and religious convictions of the people of St. Louis by seeking to make St. Louis a “sanctuary city” for abortion. Unless HCS HB 174 or SB 41 is enacted, that St. Louis City ordinance will force churches and others to be complicit in the profound evil of abortion.

Pass HCS HB 194 or SB 67, The Women’s Health Care Protection Act that requires:

  • Annual on-site abortion clinic inspections;
  • Accountability of baby body parts from abortion;
  • Whistleblower protection;
  • two-parent notification prior to a minor having an abortion; and,
  • Stated Jurisdiction for Attorney General when dealing with Abortion Cases
