Rep. Hannah Kelly Addresses Importance of SB 5 in Op-Ed

Early this week, Rep. Hannah Kelly (R-Mountain Grove) wrote a guest column in the Missouri Times titled, “SB 5 worthy of special session … and better than any vacation.” The piece addressed the importance of the ongoing pro-life special session in the Missouri legislature.

“Caring for women means caring for the whole person. Thankfully, if SB 5 passes, it means women will be able to find shelter and support at places like Our Lady’s Inn as they wrestle with the moral, practical, and spiritual questions posed by an unplanned pregnancy. It also means that everyone will have an equal opportunity to express their opinion about abortion, which is good for democracy.

I am proud of Governor Greitens for calling us back to the State Capitol this summer, and I am grateful to be working for the passage of SB 5. It will secure the First Amendment rights of every Missourian. If you ask me, that’s definitely worthy of a special session … and better than any vacation.”
