Counterpoint: Hawley Takes his Anti-Choice Obsession to the Senate
 
Despite the best efforts of Attorney General Hawley to shut down clinics and restrict access to care across the state, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals delivered a resounding win for women and families. Hawley, who is only concerned with his own career, made it his personal mission to use his elected office to enforce an out-of-touch ideology. The court saw through his argument and ordered him to stand down, issuing a ruling that paves the way for new health clinics to open in order to serve women across the state. Even with this victory, we must continue to be on guard, as Hawley has now announced his campaign for the Senate. Hawley has continuously used women as props throughout his career, and now he’s elevating his attacks on reproductive rights all the way to Congress.....
For Many, Keeping a Job Means Hiding an Abortion
 
"We know women are being discriminated against in the workplace and in housing when it comes to their reproductive health care choices, and they need to be protected,” said Alison Dreith, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri. 
8 Men on What It Was Like When Their Partner Had an Abortion
 
We decided that even though she was pregnant, we still had the choice not to have kids. I’ve never been the best at communication and could’ve asked more questions during our conversations, but I don’t think that would’ve changed anything. Because Alison worked for NARAL, she knew Missouri makes women wait 72 hours to have an abortion to try and shame them. So instead, she went across the border to Illinois and got the the procedure done in just one appointment.
What Else Happened? Buried Stats, Forgotten Kids, and Court Shenanigans

As you know Missouri is one of the most restrictive statesin the country, but I think specifically we passed a refer and followprivileges in 2005 and a TRAP law in 2007, similar to those struck down by theSupreme Court in Texas last year that really started closing those clinics, leavingus with the one currently standing here in St. Louis....

 
ACLU Files Suit Against St. Louis, Alleging Civil Rights Violations Against Protesters
 
The lawsuit was filed today in federal court on behalf of lead plaintiffs Maleeha Ahmad (who appears on the cover of this week's RFT and in the photo above after being hit with pepper spray downtown last Friday) and Alison Dreith, who was also pepper-sprayed at the downtown protest. Dreith is also executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri.
 
"St. Louis should be a place where all people feel safe against retaliation from law enforcement, and all should receive due process," Dreith said in a statement. "We should strive to be a place where every citizen feels supported by the communities we call home. This is the vision that drives us into the streets and inspires us to hold our leaders accountable when they betray our values."
