St Louis City Board of Alderman Move Unconstitutional Buffer Zone Bill Forward

The Public Safety Committee of the St. Louis City Board of Alderman ignored our many calls of concern regarding the "buffer zone" bill that denies sidewalk counselors at abortion clinics from being within 8 feet of the driveway entrance to the facility (BB34). 

Showing an utter disregard for our free speech rights protected by our Constitution, they passed BB34 out of Committee and on to the full Assembly for a possible vote on Friday 2/16/18 at 10:00 a.m.

This vote reflects how closely allied the City government is with the abortion industry. While they claim to support women's health, they are denying these women in difficult situations the option to avoid a lifetime of regret. The aldermen tout women's choice, but deny them the important information they need to make that choice. An uninformed choice is no choice at all.  

For the health and safety of Missouri women and for the preservation of our constitutionally recognized free speech, we ask your continued prayers that God open the hearts and minds of the St. Louis City Board of Aldermen to the threat BB34 poses and to grant them the wisdom to make the right decision to vote against BB34.

We will continue to update you on the vote.
