Add Your Voice! Greitens’ New Abortion Rules Are Terrible

This summer, Gov. Greitens called an expensive special legislative session with the goal of further limiting access to abortion. Lawmakers went along, adding 30+ new pages of medically unnecessary abortion restrictions to the books. Missouri’s abortion laws were already some of the most restrictive in the nation, and this new law makes things even worse.

Now, the department responsible for implementing these restrictions has gone even further than the Legislature, proposing reams of outrageous and medically unnecessary rules for abortion providers in our state.

Before finalizing these terrible rules, the state must allow the public 30 days to comment. Sunday, December 31 is the deadline. Add your comment today!

2018 Missouri Legislative Session Preview

The Missouri Legislature will convene for the 2018 session on Wednesday, January 3. We begin the year with 44 legislators who consistently support Missourians’ sexual and reproductive health — 9 in the Senate and 35 in the House.

Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri will once more be in the Capitol, on the ground, and online working to advance positive legislation, stop bad bills, and keep you informed and engaged.

Stand With Planned Parenthood in Your Community

Holding Sens. Onder and Koenig Accountable

State Senators Bob Onder (R-2, St. Charles) and Andrew Koenig (R-15, Manchester) have been wasting taxpayers’ time and money by attacking Planned Parenthood and making it even more difficult for Missourians to access safe and legal abortion.

Missourians deserve better. The residents in these districts deserve better.

It’s time to take action. If you live in the Second or 15th Districts, get a yard sign to show you stand with Planned Parenthood and you expect better from your state senator!

Recap: Another Successful Open Enrollment Period!

The latest open enrollment period for health insurance seekers ended December 15. Trained enrollment assisters and navigators, including those at Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, helped 245,580 Missourians get covered. Though this year’s enrollment period was half as long as 2016’s, 1000 more Missourians were able to enroll in health insurance!
