Please submit your pro-life comments on each of the Initiative Petitions (2024-129 through 2024-134) by September 29, 2023. Below is background and talking points:

Background: On Wednesday morning, August 30, 2023 a newly established 501c4 non-profit organization, established in June of 2023 called “Missouri Women and Family Research Fund,” filed 6 pro-abortion Initiative Petitions with the Missouri Secretary of State’s office. This organization was formed by Jamie Corley, a pro-abortion Republican, based out of St. Louis and is represented by a known pro-abortion Democrat attorney that defends the majority of every Planned Parenthood lawsuit filed in Missouri. 

These pro-abortion Initiative Petitions seek to enshrine a right to abortion up to the point of birth in the Missouri Constitution and do it under the disguise of misleading information. This ballot measure will be on the November 5, 2024 Statewide ballot. 

Talking Points to Consider when Submitting Your Comments to the Missouri Secretary of State on Proposed Pro-Abortion Initiative Petitions (2024-129 through 2024-134):

-Missouri has long been a state working to protect women and unborn babies by developing and funding programs such as Alternatives to Abortion and Show-Me Healthy Babies.

-After a baby is born, Missouri cares for women with health insurance programs such as MoHealthNet and Show-Me Healthy Babies.

-Missourians value life at every stage of development.

-Missouri currently does not prosecute women for abortion and does not have plans to do so. Missouri has a strong history of supporting women and their unborn babies.

-All innocent human life has intrinsic value and we oppose abortion at every stage of development from inception of biological development to after the baby is born through natural death.

-As a Missourian we oppose Initiative Petitions  # (enter no. from above) for the following reasons:

  • The petitions will allow for abortions to be performed up until the moment of birth and possibly beyond.
  • The petitions do not take into account the pain felt by the baby during an abortion.
  • The petitions do not take into account the complications for the woman that come from an abortion.
  • The petitions will deny any woman harmed by an abortionist her right to sue for malpractice to recover for her injuries.
  • The petitions nullify current Missouri laws that protect pregnant women and their unborn babies.
