ACLU to Seek Referendum on HB 126, Missouri's New Pro-life Law

The ACLU of Missouri announced this week that it plans to begin collecting signatures in order to put a ballot measure before voters seeking an up or down vote on HB 126, the recently-passed pro-life law signed by Governor Parson last week. To block the law from going into effect and to get the issue on the ballot in November 2020, the ACLU would have to collect signatures from 5% of voters in 5 of Missouri's 8 Congressional districts (over 100,000 signatures) prior to August 28th. If they succeed in collecting the signatures, the law would be blocked per the Missouri Constitution until voters have a chance to vote on it in the 2020 general election. "If this gets on the ballot, the pro-life law we worked so hard to pass could be overturned," MCC Executive Director Tyler McClay said. The MCC urges all Catholics not to sign this referendum petition if asked.
