Rep. Lavender is a pro-choice champion for women! She consistently votes in favor of policies that support a full-range of reproductive issues, from expanding contraceptive access to defending the right to choose.
In 2018, Rep. Lavender introduced an amendment to HB 1266 that would require all organizations providing pregnancy-related services or counseling to provide medically-accurate and unbiased information in order to receive state funding. Though the amendment was not passed, we now know how the Missouri legislature stands on making sure women get the most accurate information before making a choice.
