We know they are with us on HB 1430 but could not be there today for personal reasons.  If you have any questions on your legislator's vote, please call our office at 573-635-5110.

HB 1430 now moves to the Senate for consideration and was first read February 13.   

HB 1430 specifies that anyone providing medical services or doing research cannot be required to perform or participate in activities that violate his or her conscience or principles.
Thank you to all Republicans and Democrats who voted to send this pro-life bill to the Senate!
