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.

This is not a drill.

Just days after signing into law an extreme and dangerous bill that bans abortion after eight weeks, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson has weaponized the health department to block the last remaining licensed abortion center from providing care in the state.

Sign on to tell Gov. Parson to stop the attacks and renew the license for Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region!
