Letter to the editor,

The Missouri House of Representatives recently passed HB126, “The Heartbeat Bill,” which is the strongest pro-life legislation in the country. This bill would prevent any abortion after the detection of a heartbeat - which could be as soon as six weeks. It also prohibits any selective abortion based on race, sex or a down-syndrome diagnosis. Also, the bill outlaws any abortion if Roe. v Wade is ever overturned. At a time when New York has passed a bill which allows abortion right up to birth, I am thankful I live in Missouri and have Louis Riggs representing me in the State House. State Senator Cindy O’Laughlin is ready to sign on to similar bills in the Senate. We hope to see these bills advance to the Governor’s desk.

Sincerely,

Geri Graves
