MCF Launch Campaign to End Total Abortion Ban 

January 18, 2024

Missouri — Today, Missourians for Constitutional Freedom, a Missouri-led coalition of in-state advocates including the ACLU of Missouri, Abortion Action Missouri, Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes and Advocates of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri is launching their campaign to end Missouri’s abortion ban with the power and voices of the people.

“Politicians in Jefferson City are endangering the lives and wellbeing of the patients I care for, plain and simple. Missouri’s cruel and restrictive ban on abortion is tying the hands of doctors and preventing necessary care. Today, Missourians are taking a critical step to make their own medical decisions and kick politicians out of the exam room,” said Dr. Iman Alsaden, advisor to Missourians for Constitutional Freedom and chief medical officer, Planned Parenthood Great Plains. “I have always trusted all patients to make decisions that are best for their unique situations and lives. As a Missourian, I’m proud to join with other providers, advocates, and patients to end the harm caused by Missouri’s abortion ban.”

Passing this amendment will end the state’s abortion ban and make sure Missourians and their families can once again make the decisions that are best for them. Decisions around pregnancy, including abortion, birth control, and miscarriage care are personal and private and should be left up to patients and their families.

But here in Missouri, politicians are making that decision for patients. They’ve already banned abortion. Pregnant Missourians are in danger – facing some of the highest rates of maternal mortality and without treatment options for life-threatening pregnancy complications. OBGYNs and maternity practices are packing up and moving away to avoid political harassment and criminalization. We don’t have time to wait. Together, we are going to end Missouri’s cruel abortion ban.
