What a fantastic “Pro-life Action Day”!
“Thank you pro-lifers” for coming to Jefferson City to stand up for the unborn and visit your legislators! You were GREAT!
On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, the Senate Health and Pensions Committee passed Senate Committee Sub (SCS) of SB 279 out of committee: 5 yes (Senators Onder, Eigel, Koenig, Sater and White), 1 no (Senator Holsman) and 1 absent (Senator Schupp). This omnibus pro-life bill (SCS SB 279) includes the new version of the heartbeat bill, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the trigger bill to ban abortion when Roe v. Wade is overturned.
In that same Senate hearing SB 388, sponsored by Senator Eric Burlison, was heard. SB 388 is the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act” to protect babies born alive after an abortion. It is unthinkable that we are even talking about this, but after New York, Virginia and other states are legalizing infanticide, we must speak out and ensure protection for these born-alive babies in Missouri!
ON MONDAY, MARCH 25, AFTER THE LEGISLATIVE SPRING BREAK,
WE WILL ASK YOU TO ….. TAKE ACTION!
We must stay vigilant to get our strong pro-life bills passed and sent to the Governor!
Beginning Monday, March 25 - Contact President Pro-Tem Dave Schatz at 573-751-3678 https://www.senate.mo.gov/mem26/

Please take up and pass HB 126 and/or SCS SB 279, these bills are omnibus pro-life bills that include a new version of the heartbeat bill, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and the trigger bill to ban abortion when Roe v. Wade is overturned as well as other great pro-life legislation! Please pass these bills to save babies and protect women! The nation is watching Missouri!
