It’s time to make Missouri the most Pro-Life state in the country! Thanks to leaders in the House and Senate, we are one vote away from passing one of the strongest #ProLife bills in the country – standing for life, protecting women’s health, and advocating for the unborn.
11:14 AM – 15 May 2019
Some of comments:
People will still have abortions, why not spend more money on education and contraception?
I’m assuming that you will put measures in place to punish men who do not pay 50% of child support or provide 50% of the care for these children? Otherwise you are just punishing women for sex, not truly helping children.
Clumps of cells get rights actual voting women only wish they had.
For the life of me, I can’t understand the blinders thinking of pro-“life”, but anti-common sense gun legislation. Anti social services. Anti adequate health care. Anti teacher support. I can’t fathom why THIS is your goal. As a lifelong resident, it sickens me.
Because they can.
This bill will not be popular. Just like undermining Clean Missouri and the Medical Marijuana amendments will not be popular.
The MO GOP is overreaching, and it will pay for it dearly in 2020.
hey mike, have you ever bled from your vagina?
You do know this covers mistresses too?
It would be great if MO Repubs cared as much for the born, rather than continuing to scale back social support programs.
Not to mention hospitals and other medical care facilities anywhere other then major cities.
But keep voting Republican…
Can we find something else to be strong in?
According to this link, Missouri is SO pro life they’ve executed *checks notes* 88 people since 1976. Or did you just mean pro SOME lives?
Sharia law comes to Missouri.
Missouri women will die if these laws are passed. The loss of their lives will be on your hands because you refuse to see women as anything more than child-bearing vessels.
Great, so you’re going to make it more difficult to buy firearms? Ban high capacity magazines? Limit ammunition purchases? Require a gun registry for all gun owners and liability insurance as well? That would be the most “pro-life” thing I can think of.
This does not protect women’s health. It turns us into incubators.
I’m astounded that you think this is a good thing. You arent standing up for anything – instead of SAFE, RESPONSIBLE abortions by MEDICAL DOCTORS, you lead people back to back alleys. Forcing a woman to be an incubator is NOT protecting women’s health. Corpses get more rights.
Resign for the well being of anyone capable of getting pregnant in this state
People will die if you do this.
Mike, you’re only the governor because the other white guy tied up his mistress and blackmailed her with the photos. Take your GOP righteousness and GTFO.
Missouri has the death penalty, no?
Your bill is honestly disgraceful and I’m ashamed of any “progress” you think we’ve made as a state in this regard.
This is a step backward for Missouri. Progress doesn’t mean infringing on women’s rights and making the health of their bodies more restrictive. #YouMonster.
Pro-life, you say? So when are you doing something about gun control?
Translation: I really don’t care about women’s rights or any birthed children. I’m just an old white man who wants to control them.
I don’t think those words mean what you think they mean. #RoeVWade
You’re NOT “pro-life” unless you also want strict gun control, healthcare for all, ban the death penalty, environmental protections, climate action. What you’re doing is removing women’s rights over their own bodies, imposing your religious beliefs on others, & abridging freedom.
Wow, look at all the support for your forced birth law!
we don’t want this
Pro-life? So you’ll end the death penalty? You’ll concentrate resources to improve infant mortality outcomes? You’ll make sure healthcare is not a death or bankruptcy proposition? You’ll make sure kids in school are there to learn and are not an okay sacrifice for gun ownership?
Are you expanding Medicaid? Fantastic! Otherwise “pro-life” is “pro-control women” and that’s all.
DO IT and then get ready to be voted out, you misogynistic prick. Women are sick of having men tell us what we can do with our bodies, and if you think the 2018 midterms were scary for the gop, JUST WAIT.
Focus on housing. Focus on climate. Focus on jobs. Focus on education. Focus on mental health. Those are #prolife priorities.
I dont remember voting on this…
Are we putting this to a vote? Or is my government going to take away my rights without input from Missouri’s voters?
They know if abortion rights are ever put to a popular vote, they’ll lose, so why would they bother with democracy? Pretty clear today’s GOP has no interest in a democratic process.
As a Missouri voter, No. Just No. Leave my body alone. It’s not yours.
Missouri ranks 42nd in the US in maternal mortality rates. 49th in firearm deaths. 35th in infant mortality.
You’re doing it wrong.
Protecting women’s health huh? How’d you work that one out?
Have a vasectomy instead Mike
Are you gonna ban guns? They be against life
Great. When are we repealing the death penalty? Or do you mean working on reducing the homicide rate? Excellent. Otherwise, get your hands off women’s bodies.
You know nothing about women’s health.
Such wrongly directed intentions! Shame!
Understand the voters do not want this. You aren’t protecting women’s health, as pregnancy has far more risks than abortion. I’ll believe you’re pro-life when this state takes care of needy kids better than we do big corporations. Early term abortion should be easily accessible.
It is a woman’s body, not yours… not mine… her body her choice. Why do old white guys #OWG feel they need or by divine policy they need to try and control them? Your god gave us free will, let them utilize it.
The governor’s mistress will always have access to safe abortions
Governor, if you want to make Missouri a pro-life state, maybe you should start by eliminating the death penalty.
It is no coincidence that states that cost more in federal funds than what they contribute to the treasury are the ones who want to manage the vaginas and uteruses of their residents…
Thanks for the heads up. I’ll be sure to get involved in advocacy to stop it. #StopTheBans #ProChoice
If you do, I can assure you I will NOT vote for you or anyone else that tries this nonsense.
You’re just a #ForcedBirthExtremist. Fuck off
Got dang right Mike. We need to start executing the abortion doctors and the people that have abortions. Then Missouri will win the most pro life trophy
This being Missouri we can’t be certain it’s sarcasm.
The dead have more autonomy
Well that didn’t go well for @GovParsonMO
Stop returning us to The Dark Ages
Missouri: another state supporting forced pregnancy extremists.
Thanks for this. I will now spend my fortune supporting your opponents
If you’re trying to top Alabama, do you plan to rename your state Gilead?
Nah. If you were truly pro-life, you’d take action on gun control, support laws to fight climate change, and work on getting good health care to everyone instead of trying to take it away.
Sharia law highly enforced.
Wow, it’s a race to the bottom and Missouri wants a piece of it!
