06/24/19-Missouri Mondays-TAKE ACTION! STAY INFORMED! Help keep abortion care safe and legal!
YOU were instrumental in ending state sponsored sexual assault! After a national outcry against Department of Health and Senior Services requirement of an invasive and medically unnecessary vaginal exam 72 hours prior to abortion care, DHSS rescinded its position. Public pressure does work! But OUR FIGHT HAS NOT ENDED! The Governor and Missouri’s DHSS have weaponized health and safety regulations by rescinding Planned Parenthood’s license to perform abortions. Be aware--The last remaining clinic to provide abortions in the state is STILL OPEN and MAY STILL PROVIDE ABORTIONS per the preliminary injunction ordered by the MIssouri State Circuit Court, but its fate now lies in the court’s hands. We must continue the fight to protect access to safe and legal abortion care for all Missourians.
TAKE ACTION AND STAY INFORMED!
CALL THE GOVERNOR AT (573) 751-3222 AND DEMAND THE RESIGNATION OF DHSS DIRECTOR RANDALL WILLIAMS for weaponizing Missouri’s health and safety!
