The following statement can be attributed to Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life:
Missouri Right to Life is grateful to the Governor for signing SB 126 sponsored by Senator David Sater, District 29. This legislation simply says that licensed pharmacies cannot be required to carry or maintain in inventory any specific drug or device. This will give protection to pharmacy owners from lawsuits by those who would seek to force them to carry abortifacient drugs or devices.
Although this legislation is not specific to the abortion issue, the broad language covers pharmacy owners who would seek to stand on their religious and moral beliefs not to carry abortifacient drugs or devices.
