Another pro-life bill passes on the heels of Missouri Right to Life’s “Show Me Life” Pro-life Action Day. The House gave final approval today to HB 1132.

The assistances given to women in these PRC’s and maternity homes helps them choose life for their unborn child and protects them from the dangers of abortion.
HB 1132 is sponsored by Rep. Kevin Engler as well as Rep. Jeanie Riddle, who amended the bill with similar language.
HB 1132 passed the House with bi-partisan support and now moves to the Senate for consideration. HB 1132 passed by a vote of 113 to 36. Missouri Right to Life thanks all the House members, both Republicans and Democrats, for their support of this life-saving legislation.
