The Missouri Catholic Conference (MCC) is preparing for the upcoming legislative veto session that begins on September 10. Governor Jay Nixon vetoed two pro-life bills: HB 1307, which extends the waiting period for obtaining an abortion to 72 hours, and HB 1132, which increases the tax credits available for donations to pregnancy resource centers, maternity homes, and food pantries.
The MCC needs your help to override these vetoes. Many MCC Citizen’s Network members have contacted their legislators encouraging them to be present for the veto session and to vote in favor of an override on these two important pro-life bills. If you haven’t contacted your State Representative or Senator, it isn’t too late. You can click here to send a pre-prepared message. It only takes a moment. Thanks for your support.
