The Senate Judiciary Committee has heard several pro-life bills, including SB 84, sponsored by Senator Scott Rupp (R-Wentzville), and SB 175, sponsored by Senator Wayne Wallingford (R-Cape Girardeau).
SB 84 would protect the conscience rights of health care workers, allowing them to opt out of participating in unethical medical practices, including abortion, sterilization, contraception, assisted reproduction, and embryonic stem cell research.
SB 175 would prevent abortion clinics from performing chemical abortions by telemedicine, whereby the abortion drug RU-486 is given outside the physical presence of the prescribing doctor.
The MCC, along with other pro-life lobbying groups, will be testifying in support of these bills. Keep us in your prayers!
