Governor Nixon Vetoes SB 749

The following statement can be attributed to Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life.

During the 2012 Legislative Session, the Missouri Senate and House passed SB 749 in response to the HHS mandate from Kathleen Sebelius and the Obama Administration forcing religious institutions to pay for abortions. SB 749 would have sent a clear message that pro-life Missourians oppose participating in the taking of innocent human lives against our religious beliefs. SB 749 also would have placed in statute the ability for people of faith to bring a lawsuit if they are forced to pay for morally objectionable procedures. Governor Nixon joins the Obama Administration in attacking our religious liberty by supporting the HHS mandate forcing all Missourians to pay for insurance that includes abortion coverage even if doing so is a violation of our religious beliefs.

SB 749 passed the Missouri House and Senate with strong bi-partisan support. Missouri Right to Life urges the legislature to override this veto in September. A veto override of SB 749 will show pro-life Missourians who will stand for our religious liberties.

We are sincerely disappointed that Governor Nixon has chosen to give away our religious liberties to Washington politicians.

    It’s sad wen we allow dame to get the better part of us forgetting that which is upright and moral. What if the lazima been put in place b4 the governor was born, maybe he would been aborted. He was given a chance to live, if not for morals then let him do to the unborn that which if was done to. Life is sacred n no one owns it except the Almighty.
