We’re more than half way through the 2015 legislative session in Missouri and we’ve seen dozens of anti-women’s health bills filed.

Inaction by the Legislature’s Leadership has already cost us two years of federally funded coverage under the Affordable Care Act.

Time and again we hear from legislators, “My constituents just don’t care about reproductive health issues.” But we know they are misinformed. Thousands of Missourians across our state care deeply about reproductive health issues – from access to affordable birth control and medically accurate sex education to life-saving cancer screenings and safe, legal abortion.
