Abortion opponents hopeful with GOP in control of House, Senate, governorship

Despite Republican control, which began in 2017, there is still opposition to some of the legislation by abortion-rights groups that are active in Jefferson City, including the NARAL Pro-choice Missouri, which is rallying supporters.

Alison Dreith, executive director for NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, said that in recent years anti-abortion legislation introduced in Missouri has generally taken one of two paths: addition regulation on abortion providers that abortion-rights activists say makes it more difficult for them to operate in the state, and cutting off Medicaid funding to low-income women who might choose to use an abortion provider such as Planned Parenthood....

In The Face Of More Missouri Abortion Restrictions, One Woman Tells Her Story

Alison Dreith, head of NARAL Missouri, an abortion rights advocacy group, says the biggest effect of the late-terms bans in most states is to create additional hardships for women who already are in difficult situations.

"These abortion bans are archaic and show a real lack of empathy for families that go through this pain,” Dreith says.

 
Politically Speaking: Treasurer Tishaura Jones on navigating the mayoral melee
 
Since she entered the mayor’s race last year, Jones snagged endorsements from a number of progressive-leaning organizations – including NARAL Pro Choice Missouri, Mobilize Missouri and the Service Employees International Union.

Missouri Representative equates sperm to tadpoles; raising serious questions about.. everything.

In a back and forth discussion on the legislation at hand, Rep. Moon equated sperm with a tadpole, asserting they were both "alive”. 

While NARAL quickly responded pointing out the difference, the fact the subject could be raised brings up serious concerns as to the state of sex education in Missouri, or in fact, basic biology. Also of concern is how women would adjust to this argument; after all, the idea of sex which involves the equivalent of tadpoles seems incredibly off-putting to say the least.

 
For Missouri NARAL, 'Sanctuary City' Success in St. Louis Follows New, Local Focus
 
For NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, the legislative victory was part of a conscious decision to go on the offense on the municipal level rather than just play defense at the state legislature. Executive Director Alison Dreith now plans to work with allies on the board to reintroduce in April a bill to mandate a buffer zone at the state's only abortion clinic, and she hopes to have even more friendly members on the Board of Aldermen to help her do it....
#ProtestPP Supporters ‘Expose’ Planned Parenthood Using False Information
 
Alison Dreith, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, said such clinics would be overwhelmed if they had to take on the thousands of patients Planned Parenthood now sees across the country. "Other agencies have admitted that,” she said. "They wouldn’t be able to shoulder that.”.....
