Happy Birthday, America! 
 "Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty." - Samuel Adams

Give thanks this day for the freedoms and rights that are given to us by the Constitution of this great country.  Give thanks for those who sacrificed their lives and livelihoods at its inception, and those who have done so and do so today on the battlefields and in the conflicts, past and present,  in which we have been forced to engage.

 

Governor Nixon Vetoes the 72-Hour Reflection Period Bill
On Wednesday, July 2nd, Governor Nixon vetoed the 72-hour reflection period bill. This bill would have extended the current 24-hour reflection period after consultation to 72 hours before a woman has an abortion. This extra time will allow a woman to reflect on all her options before deciding to go forward with an abortion. Governor Nixon has vetoed a bill that would save babies and protect women from abortion clinics seeking to make a profit on an abortion. We urge all pro-life legislators of both political parties to vote to override the Governor's veto of HB 1307.

Right to Religious Freedom Triumphs
On Monday, June 30th, the Supreme Court upheld the fundamental right of the American people to exercise their religious freedom. The 5-4 decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby confirms the principles on which our country was founded. The Court's ruling acknowledges that privately owned businesses like Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods cannot be forced to violate their principles by providing abortifacient drugs through their company's insurance plans. With the decision the American people won a great victory.
