Missouri Women Will Need ‘Permission Slips’ From Fathers To Get Abortions, If This Law Passes

Watch out, Florida and Mississippi — Missouri is coming for you. Between this and Ferguson, the state may be a top contender for Absolute Worst State in the Country.

She pointed out that this was the wrong place to be protesting if Abort 67 cared so much about the lives of children – the violent image of an aborted fetus is absolutely not what traumatized children need to be exposed to. “They’re meant to see this? And this is the people we work with, girls that have been abused, molested, and you’ve got this on?” She asked the protesters, pointing at the picture. Keep reading »
