Legislative Update
SB 175 & HB 400 - Establishes the requirements for the administration and regulation of RU-486 and other abortion-inducing drugs and chemicals and would ban web-cam abortions in MO. When web-cam abortions began in Iowa they went from approximately 5 abortion clinics to 17. We do not want this to happen in Missouri!

SB 175 is sponsored by Senator Wayne Wallingford.   SB 175 is now on the Senate Calendar for Perfection.  We ask the Senate to take up and pass SB 175.

HB 400 is sponsored by Representative Jeanie Riddle and 114 other House members (a veto proof bi-partisan majority).   HB 400 is in the Senate and will be heard in the Judiciary and Civil and Criminal Jurisprudence Committee Monday, April 29 at 1:00 p.m.

Vatican Misses Golden Opportunity to Evangelize Stem Cell Scientists
A Vatican-sponsored three-day conference aimed at educating about the ethical benefits of adult stem cell research might have been expected to hear more than 15 minutes on ethics.
