Statement from M'Evie Mead, Director of Policy and Organizing at Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri:

Governor Parson opposes reproductive freedom. He has used every branch of Missouri government to try to eliminate access to reproductive health care — including signing an extreme abortion ban that has no exceptions for rape or incest — all while ignoring the state’s shamefully high rates of infant and maternal mortality. 

People who have an abortion deserve compassion and access to the best health care available — not to be stigmatized and villainized by the governor of their state.

Missourians understand that, regardless of anyone’s personal views on abortion, it is important that abortion remain a safe, legal medical procedure without government interference. 

Missourians deserve a governor like Auditor Nicole Galloway who will protect their reproductive freedom.
