Legislative Update

March 18, 2016 -
At the Capitol this week:

The House gave final approval yesterday, with bi-partisan support, to send HB 1370 to the Senate. HB 1370 would require both custodial parents of a minor to be informed prior to a minor getting an abortion. Current law requires the consent of one parent prior to an abortion on a minor.  HB 1370 would expand on this law.

HB 1370 is sponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller, R-Lake Ozark. Miller said the real reason he sponsored this bill is because of the situation he found himself in with his daughter. He told the House that his ex-wife had informed him when his teenage daughter was considering getting an abortion, and this gave him a chance to be a part of this decision. In the end, Miller said his daughter did not get the abortion, and he and his wife raised the child as their own.

"I don't want to stop anything, I want to start something," Miller said. "I want to start a conversation among caring parents, and that's what this bill will do."

Susan Klein, Legislative Liaison for Missouri Right to Life stated, "Parents have a protectable interest in the life, health and well-being of their child. Abortion has multiple risks and all parents should be informed of an impending abortion on their child. In today's times when young people, still under age and on their parents' insurance, are pulled many different directions by family issues, parental notification is essential to all parents in the protection of their child's health."

Missouri Right to Life supports HB 1370 and encourages the Senate to take up and pass this common sense legislation.

HB 1370 in the News
This week the Missouri House sent to the Senate a bill that would require both custodial parents of a minor to be informed prior to a minor getting an abortion.

Next President will pick Justice Scalia's successor
Missouri Right to Life and National Right to Life strongly support Republican senators' decision to preserve the current U.S. Supreme Court vacancy for the next president to fill. Pro-life laws, as well as other important issues, depend on it.

Obama, who filibustered Samuel Alito's nomination, repeatedly urged the Supreme Court to strike down state laws that violate no constitutional text. Senate Democrats killed many of President George W. Bush's nominations to courts of appeals by denying them up or down votes. Even earlier, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Sen. Joe Biden killed President George H.W. Bush's January, 1992 nomination of John Roberts to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, simply by refusing to schedule a hearing on the nomination through the entire year. Indeed, during 1992 alone, Roberts was one of over 50 Bush judicial nominees who never received a hearing from Biden.
