In May, Missouri politicians passed a dangerous bill that would triple the amount of time a woman must wait before having a safe and legal abortion. A woman should have the right to make private medical decisions with her doctor and without more government intrusion. Governor Nixon VETOED this bill, but legislators poised to attempt an override on September 10th.

Stand with Missouri Women and urge your legislator to sustain the governor’s veto of the mandatory delay bill!

learned that yelling “fire”
was more effective than yelling “rape”

It’s almost like pro choicers were right all along about birth control being the best way to reduce abortion rates…. go figure.

It’s almost like if you make is really easy for people who don’t want to get pregnant to, in fact, not get pregnant, then you get fewer unwanted pregnancies and, thus, fewer people trying to end unwanted pregnancies. Like god damn witchcraft.

It’s time to take back Missouri for women and families!

A federal judge just blocked a medically unnecessary “Texas-style” law in Alabama that would have severely restricted access to safe, legal abortion by forcing all but 2 health centers to stop providing abortions. 

Laws like these place onerous restrictions on doctors and health centers, are politically motivated, and do nothing to advance patients’ health — instead, they put women in danger.

We needed Governor Jay Nixon to stand for women’s health – and he just vetoed a bill that would have created a dangerous and unnecessary new burden for women! He’s been a strong champion for women’s health and rights in the past. Now, thank him for once again standing with Missouri women.

The country is watching — and if politicians get away with imposing these new burdens on people seeking safe and legal abortion in Missouri, other states will follow. It has to stop here.
