Following the results of Missouri’s primary elections, Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri released the following statement.
Statement from Yamelsie Rodríguez, president and CEO, Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri
“Missouri voters know the consequences of elections and what’s at stake in our state. It is part and parcel what led us to today’s reality — where 1.3 million Missourians of reproductive age have no legal right to abortion. Who we send to Jefferson City matters more now than ever. I look forward to working with these pro-abortion candidates on the road to the general election. The rebuilding of reproductive freedom starts now and as we saw last night in Kansas, abortion is a winning issue.”
