A pro-life coalition, Missouri Stands with Women, has been launched in Missouri to combat out-of-state funded initiative petitions seeking to reverse pro-life laws and introduce extreme abortion initiatives into the state’s constitution.

Backed by Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, the coalition aims to protect Missouri’s pro-life laws and prevent unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortions up to the moment of birth.

The state courts have finalized ballot wording for six potential abortion-related amendments, with five allowing abortions up to 24 weeks of pregnancy.

“Out-of-state extremists pushing Big Abortion’s agenda are intent on using the initiative petition process to reverse all the pro-life work our state has undertaken to protect the dignity of life, safety of women, and parental rights,” Missouri Stands with Women spokeswoman Stephanie Bell said.

“We are united in our efforts to ensure these out-of-state extremists are not allowed to tear the fabric of our constitution by placing unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortions up to the moment of birth, effectively overriding all Missouri’s pro-life laws,” Bell added.

Pro-abortion groups in Missouri have remained silent on signature collection plans, with a tight deadline for submission.

“Any pro-abortion rights campaign that emerges faces a tight May 5 deadline to submit the roughly 180,000 signatures it will take to make the ballot, which must come from six of eight Missouri congressional districts,” a report stated..

“Groups such as Planned Parenthood and Abortion Action Missouri have refused to get behind a more moderate alternative being pushed by Jamie Corley, a Republican whose plan would allow abortion within the first 12 weeks of pregnancy,” it added.

Abortion is currently outlawed in Missouri except in cases of serious risks to the mother’s physical health or to protect her life.
