Two Weeks Left to Pass Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act

yawning baby

With two weeks left in the legislative session, there is still time for the General Assembly to pass HB 126, sponsored by Rep. Nick Schroer (R-O'Fallon), the comprehensive pro-life bill also referred to as the "Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act." This bill contains numerous pro-life protections, including a ban on abortions at eight weeks and a trigger ban outlawing abortion in Missouri if Roe v. Wade is overturned. Next week, be on the lookout for an MCC Action Alert asking you to contact your senator to ask him or her to take up and pass this important piece of pro-life legislation.  

The MCC has supported HB 126 throughout the legislative process and we need your help to get the bill truly agreed and finally passed.
