Missouri Personhood

Missouri House passes a Personhood Bill.

The Missouri House of Representatives voted 112-36 to approve a constitutional amendment to protect the right to life of unborn children “at every stage of biological development,” which, if passed by the Senate, will go to the voters.

The bill’s sponsor, Mike Moon stated, “The silence of those who want to protect the unborn is similar to the silence of Germans who stood by and allowed Jewish people to be slaughtered by the Nazis.”

During the floor debate, Representative Tila Hubrecht stated, “More violence is not the answer to a rape.” She added, “It is not up to us to say…just because there was a rape, they cannot exist.’”

Pray for the Missouri Senate to approve it next. If they do and the voters agree, it will make Missouri the most pro-life state in the nation.
