The following statement can be attributed to Steve Rupp, President Missouri Right to Life:
Yesterday, September 24, the University of Missouri took a step in the right direction when they announced they would withdraw the “refer and follow” privileges from abortionist Colleen McNicholas beginning December 1, 2015.
We commend the University for this step. However, there are still major concerns.
First, why the delay? How many babies will lose their lives between now and December 1? If you are going to withdraw privileges, why not now?
Second, will the University offer more privileges in December? Will they offer privileges to another abortionist?
There are many unanswered questions at this time.
We thank Senator Kurt Schaefer and the Senate Sanctity of Life Committee members as well as the House Ways and Means and Children and Families Committees for the progress we are making and we encourage them to continue their investigations.
We recommend pro-lifers keep up the pressure. And continue to ask MU to stop enabling the abortion business immediately!
There are babies to save today!
