Reject a Special Session

Reject this attack on reproductive health and rights!

Governor Eric Greitens has called lawmakers to return to Jefferson City for an unnecessary, $20,000-per-day special session. The goal? To cater to anti-reproductive health extremists by passing more laws restricting Missourians’ access to health care.

Since November, tens of thousands of Missourians like you have stood up and spoken out for reproductive rights, access to abortion, and affordable health care. We know you didn’t send your elected officials to the Capitol to push an extreme anti-sexual and reproductive health agenda. Tell your lawmakers that you won’t tolerate politicians who promote more government intrusion into Missourians’ personal reproductive health decisions.

The General Assembly adjourned for the year less than four weeks ago after passing a budget measure effectively dismantling the Women’s Health Services Program. It blocks low-income Missourians from accessing vital preventive health care, like birth control and STI testing and treatment, at Planned Parenthood health centers and many other women’s health providers. Instead of spending $20,000 per day for a special session to pass more anti-women’s health legislation, lawmakers should stand up for the Women’s Health Services Program and encourage Gov. Greitens to protect it.

Act now and tell your state senator and state representative to reject Gov. Greitens’ call for an expensive and unnecessary special session to pass more laws restricting access to sexual and reproductive health care.

Tell your state senator and state representative to:

  • Reject Gov. Greitens’ call for an expensive and unnecessary special session,

  • Oppose any attempt to undermine Missourians’ access to sexual and reproductive health care

  • Urge Gov. Greitens to instead protect the Women’s Health Services Program and focus on measures to improve Missourians’ health

Your voice can make a difference — act now!

Dear 

Governor Eric Greitens has called legislators back to Jefferson City for a special session aimed at passing more restrictions on Missourians' access to sexual and reproductive health care and override a St. Louis City law that protects people from being fired or discriminated against for getting pregnant, using contraception or any other reproductive health decision.
