The following statement is attributed to Steve Rupp, President and Susan Klein, Legislative Liaison for Missouri Right to Life:
Missouri Right to Life is pleased that Governor Greitens has seen the urgent need to call a special session of the legislature to pass legislation to protect women, unborn babies as well as the religious liberties of faith communities from all denominations to prevent them from being forced to participate in abortion.
While these bills failed to pass during the regular session, Governor Greitens has stepped forward to bring them back for passage by the pro-life majorities in our House and Senate.
We look forward to working with Governor Greitens and the legislature during this call for a special session to pass pro-life protections for Missouri’s citizens and faith based communities.
Missouri Right to Life is the leading pro-life advocacy organization statewide, representing thousands of pro-life Missourians. Legislation ensuring the right to life is crucial in achieving our goal to protect innocent human lives from inception to natural death.
