In 2019, the Missouri State Legislators passed one of the most dangerous abortion bans in the country, referred to simply as House Bill 126. In an effort to push Missouri towards becoming a “Sanctuary for Life” state — aka a state where abortion is completely inaccessible for all — the anti-choice supermajority has introduced 20 anti-reproductive and sexual health bills in 2020. But the pro-choice majority in Missouri won’t let another ban pass in 2020.
On Wednesday, March 18, we’re showing up to demand legislators pass proactive, pro-choice legislation this year focused on expanding access to a full range of contraceptive options and eliminating tax on period products rather than adding another useless ban.
NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri and our members will be filling a bus leaving from our office at 1210 S. Vandeventer. Please arrive between 6:30 and 7:00 am for breakfast; the bus will be leaving no later than 7. Lunch will be provided for all attendees, and the return trip will be at 2:30. Carpooling from Columbia will be provided. Location is TBA.
Interested in attending but don’t live in St. Louis? Fill out this form!
We’ll reach back out if we can organize a group trip from another region.
If you can’t make it on March 18th, don’t worry—we’ve got another Lobby Day set for May 6th! More information on the second lobby day to come.
