Gov. Parson Signs "Simon's Law"
On Thursday, July 11, Governor Parson signed HB 138. This legislation, known as “Simon’s Law” has been a priority of Missouri Right to Life for many years. HB 138 builds on the rights of parents to make health care decisions for their minor child(ren). 

The Crozier Family’s story as well as other stories, gave rise to the need for Simon’s Law. Parents have the right to decide and at least know if a Do-Not-Resuscitate Order is being placed in their minor childs medical file.
 
We are a nation and a state that prides itself on compassion and caring for others and yet some in health care are discriminating against those with a disability. This is a devaluation of life. We see this mindset in Obamacare when healthcare is rationed to people because of a disability or because of a medical condition and they get labeled as a “burden” to the healthcare system.

Life has intrinsic value beyond what it can produce. Production capacity is not the measure of anyone’s life value. Nor is it the right of the medical community to decide “quality of life” for a patient. Health care decisions are the right of the patient and the family. Knowledge about their healthcare is the right of the patient and the family.

HB 138 is a parental rights bill. The story of Simon and others are real. Simon’s story happened in Missouri, others have as well.

We are grateful to Rep. Bill Kidd who was persistent in bringing this bill forward for many years and we thank Governor Mike Parson for signing this important pro-life legislation into law!
The Crozier family greets Governor Parson: Mom, Sheryl; daughter, Sabella; son Sean and dad, Scott. Son Samuel was unable to attend.
