JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – This morning, Missourians for Constitutional Freedom and the ACLU of Missouri dropped off more than 380,000 signatures to the Secretary of State’s Office in hopes of asking voters later this year to overturn Missouri’s abortion ban.

Now, the Secretary of State’s office has to verify that at least 171,000 (because it’s a constitutional referendum) are from registered voters. If approved, then voters would see the question later this year.

Missourians for Constitutional Freedom is backing a proposal to allow lawmakers to regulate or ban abortion post-viability, except to protect the woman’s life and health. This effort, supported by ACLU of Missouri, local Planned Parenthood branches, and Abortion Action Missouri, aims to restore medical decision-making to individuals.
