Gov. Greitens has called lawmakers to return to Jefferson City for an expensive and unnecessary special session attacking women's health. The $20,000 it costs for a single day of special session could provide hundreds of Missourians with increased access to sexual and reproductive health care, like:

  • A well-woman exam for 100 patients,
  • One month of birth control for 800 women, or
  • STI testing and treatment for 160 patients.

Call your state representative and tell them to stop spending $20,000 per day on a special session to restrict women's health care and instead focus on expanding Missourians' access to high-quality, affordable health care.

What to say (Call Script)

Hi, my name is ____________ and I live in _____________.

I'm calling to ask my representative to stop spending $20,000 per day to restrict Missourians' access to reproductive health care.

I'm tired of my elected officials playing politics with women's health. This unnecessary special session costs $20,000 per day. This money would be better spent on improving Missourians' access to health care. The $20,000 it costs for a single day of special session could provide one month of birth control to 800 Missouri women.

[Insert your own story, if you like.]

I want my representative to stop spending taxpayer dollars to restrict Missourians' access to health care.

Thank you for your time.
