Missouri Pro-Life Legislative Update

Missouri Right to Life extends sincere thanks to Governor Eric Greitens and to the Missouri Legislature for their passage of Senate Bill 5. Many unborn babies and their mothers will be protected because of their actions and, hopefully, saved from the horrors of abortion.

Missouri Right to Life urges passage of the following important pro-life legislation during the 2018 legislative session:

Pass the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act to stop abortion on babies who are feeling excruciating pain during abortions.


Ban Dismemberment Abortions in which living unborn children are aborted by a procedure in which forceps are used to pull the baby out of the womb in pieces. This procedure is used in 95% of second trimester abortions nation-wide.

Redirect federal funding of family-planning dollars to qualified health centers and state rural health agencies to ensure that tax dollars are going to agencies that uphold state laws and that women receive quality health care.

Renew Pregnancy Resource Center Tax Credits to support the life-saving work they are providing for women in crisis pregnancies.

Pass Two-Custodial Parent Notification before an abortion for a minor.

Pass Simon’s Law to prevent hospitals and physicians from putting a do-not-resuscitate order in a minor child’s medical file without the parent’s knowledge.

Maintain Oversight and Require Accountability of Abortion Clinics Thank you for your consideration of these important concerns.
