Legislative Update: April 28, 2017

Calls are needed now to your Missouri State Senators!

Ask them to pass HCS HB 174 and HCS HB 194. These are two very important life-saving pro-life bills.

We thank our Legislators for their work in the budget bills! And, we thank Governor Greitens for his support of defunding Planned Parenthood!

While several attempts in the House and Senate to include funding for abortion services in the budget have been voted down more must be done.

The funding listed in this legislative update would help the good work of changing hearts and minds by revealing the truth about what abortion does to women and that it takes the life of the unborn child to continue.

But, what about regulating the abortion industry and its known lack of adherence to Missouri laws, Federal laws as well as attacking our constitutional right to religious liberties?

Our legislators must pass HCS HB 174 and HCS HB 194 to address these frontal assaults by the abortion industry!

Session ends Friday, May 12 at 6:00 p.m.  Call your Senators today!
