Missouri Right to Life Praises the Supreme Court’s Decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Today’s Ruling Overturns High Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade Decision
Today we thank God! May HE be with us as we continue to defend the most precious children in this new era! Today we celebrate and then we go back to work to protect unborn babies and women from the abortion industry. May God continue to bless our work.
-Steve Rupp, President, Missouri Right to Life
Missouri has been trending towards Republicans for a generation, giving the GOP legislative super majorities it used to enact some of the nation’s most restrictive abortion laws.
Yet recent polling indicates Missouri voters are open to rolling back the state’s near-total ban, with 58% of respondents to a recent St. Louis University survey saying abortion should be legal in the first eight weeks, 75% favoring exceptions for rape and 87% when the life of the mother is endangered.
As you may know, the Supreme Court overturned its 1973 Roe versus Wade decision concerning abortion, meaning there is no constitutional protection for abortion rights and each state can set its own laws to allow, restrict or ban abortions. Do you think overturning Roe versus Wade was a good thing or a bad thing?

Yesterday, in west central Missouri, at a campus street fair:
Uh, no one who is sane supports “infanticide”. It’s illegal.
Nothing about maternal mortality.
Nothing about access to healthcare.
Nothing about the death penalty.
Nothing about war.
That’s pro forced birth.
If “taxation is theft” then what are you doing here? (September 9, 2023)
