On Thursday, July 10, Governor Nixon signed bills that fund several Health Programs. Among those programs was the “Show Me Healthy Babies” program that provides health insurance for unborn babies. Hopefully, this program will help mothers choose life for their babies.
Also included was a program to set up collection and transportation sites for umbilical cord blood donations. Umbilical cord blood contains adult stem cells that can be used for ethical treatments and research.
Thank you Missouri legislature for passing these bills and Governor Nixon for signing them into law.
