Legislative Update 

April 15, 2016 -- House and Senate Take Action on Pro-Life Bills:

Yesterday the Missouri House third read and passed HB 2069 & 2371 by a vote of 120 in support to 34 opposed. HB 2069 & 2371 will place in statute accountability for abortion clinics in their disposition and tracking of the bodies of babies killed through abortion. This bill also increases information and reporting requirements in future inspections of abortion clinics.

Also yesterday, the Missouri Senate gave final approval on resolutions SR 1793 & SR 1794, addressing subpoenas issued to Planned Parenthood and the Pathology Lab Director to appear before the Missouri Senate on Monday, April 25. These subpoenas were issued because the Senate had requested information from Planned Parenthood and the Pathology lab that has, to date, not been received.
