Gov. Nixon Funds Alternatives to Abortion Program Despite $60 Million in Budget Cuts

Great news!

Over suggestions from the Missouri Health Department, the new state budget includes the funding for an abortion alternatives program. The Alternatives to Abortion program (ATA) provides a wide range of emergency services to women facing crisis pregnancies.

In response to a request from pro-abortion Gov. Jay Nixon to identify cuts in the state budget given the current fiscal crisis in Missouri, officials with the state health department proposed slashing the program’s funding in June.

However, a review of the new budget Nixon submitted shows funding for ATA is fully intact for the full amount of nearly $2 million.

That the program remains is significant given that Nixon included $60 million in spending cuts in his new budget.
