03/04/19 - Missouri Mondays - Tell Your Senator to VOTE NO! on HB 126 Forced Pregnancy Bill & MORE!

Last week the Missouri House passed House Bill 126, the most restrictive anti-abortion bill in the country forcing women to carry their pregnancy to term with NO EXCEPTION FOR RAPE OR INCEST! In a state that already has one of the highest maternal mortality rates in the country this bill would have disastrous effects, forcing Missouri women to remain pregnant and bear even a non-viable fetus! Several amendments were passed and attached to make HB 126 the most severe anti-woman bill to date.

Tell your Senator to VOTE NO! on HB 126, a bill that puts women’s health and safety at risk and violates their right to their own body and future because it would:

Eliminate all abortions if a fetal heartbeat is detected (usually around 6 weeks) except in the case of medical emergencies, which is undefined

Require that both custodial parents be notified of a minor’s pending abortion, regardless of rape or incest

Ban abortion if Down’s Syndrome is diagnosed

Require all practitioners who perform abortions to carry $1 million in malpractice insurance.

Ban all abortions and charge the provider with a felony if Roe v. Wade is overturned

We also ask you to contact your legislator to vote NO! on the following recent CALL TO ACTION bills:

Senate Bill 121

SB 121, sponsored by Sen. Eric Burlison, would would allow guns in bars, casinos, daycares, MO public college campuses, churches, polling places, and more

Hearing 2/28/19 in Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee

Senate Bill 4

SB 4, sponsored by Sen. David Sater, would take away SNAP benefits (food stamps) for failure to meet certain work requirements, affecting an estimated 52,000 Missouri children

Has moved forward to the Informal Calendar for Perfection

Senate Bill 76

SB 76 sponsored by Sen. David Sater, would require the state to apply for a waiver to allow Missouri to institute Medicaid work reporting rules

Similar legislation to SB 76 was passed in Arkansas and since last August has resulted in loss of Medicaid health coverage for more than 18,000 Arkansans

Has moved forward to the Informal Calendar for Perfection

Senate Bill 292

On this week’s Calendar for Perfection

House Bill 581

HB 581, sponsored by Rep. Rebecca Roeber, would expand charter schools throughout the state taking funding away from public schools

Reported Do Pass out of committee

House Bill 445 and Senate Bill 132

HB 445 if signed into law in its current form "...would be 'the most radical undermining of open records and transparency law in state history." Rep. Jon Carpenter

SB 132 would change MO Sunshine Law by authorizing “closure of certain constituent and legislative records of members of the General Assembly” and also “modifies provisions regarding fees for access to public records”

Both bills ignore the will of the voters who overwhelmingly passed Clean Missouri Amendment 1 for greater government transparency

HB 445 Passed House, on Senate Formal Calendar - House Bills for Second Read 3/4/19

SB 132 on the Formal Calendar Bills for Perfection 3/4/19
