Missouri Governor Mike Parson must be a Cum Laude graduate of Donald Trump’s School of Political Buffoonery. Surely, the Show Me governor got an A+ in Trump’s course on how to lie to the public with a straight face. Parson, sporting a look of great concern, told reporters that the state’s in…

I received quality healthcare from Planned Parenthood, and I trust Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood helped my husband and I plan our family. What Governor Parson and his administration are doing is a political move that will ultimately hurt Missourians. This rapid move to deny comprehe…

I am appalled that the Missouri Department of Health is willing to jeopardize the health and well-being of thousands of women in my congressional district and across our state who have the right to control their own bodies and make their own healthcare decisions.

Missouri Gov. Parson should be ashamed of riding the disgraceful coattails of 25 white men in Alabama who just voted to ban safe, legal abortion. Following in their footsteps and those of politicians in Georgia, Ohio, Kentucky, and Mississippi will be disastrous for the patients Planned Pare…

Make no mistake, this ban on abortion has nothing to do with the health and safety of patients. The 53-page bill is full of medically inaccurate information and false statements about abortion. Bans on abortion are clear messages of lawmakers taking control over patients’ reproductive health…

This legislative session has been an utter failure for Missourians. Politicians are putting the health and lives of Missouri women at risk in their race to make our state the one that overturns Roe v. Wade at the U.S. Supreme Court. These bans on safe, legal abortion will have real costs — e…
