Greitens’ cheap political games cost our families

If you look up "political opportunist” in the dictionary, you may just find a picture of Gov. Eric Greitens.

Just six months into his first term, Greitens seems to have found limitless ways to let hardworking Missouri women and families down. In fact, while the challenges that Missouri families face keep mounting, Greitens seems more interested in hanging out with the Koch brothers, cozying up to the political elite and appeasing fringe parts of his base than in listening to the needs of his constituents.....

The Breach: Democrats Should Stop Taking Black Women for Granted
 
Are the Democrats going soft on choice? Reproductive justice advocate and NARAL Missouri board member Pamela Merritt joins host Lindsay Beyerstein to discuss the rhetoric of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) Chair Ben Ray Luján who decided to remind everyone that the DCCC has no "litmus test” on abortion. Merritt explains why it’s impossible to achieve economic justice without addressing reproductive justice and that Democrats who try to tackle the former while ignoring the latter risk alienating their most loyal supporters, notably women of color. 
Eric Greitens to Address 'Women of Power' Lunch — One Day After Signing Abortion Crackdown
 
Those aren't the only costs — Alison Dreith of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri says the new laws are certain to trigger a lawsuit, one she believes the state can't win. "They think that it’ll pass the muster of the courts — it’s not going to at all," she said yesterday.

Alison Dreith, executive director of NARAL Pro Choice Missouri, said the session was "political theater” designed to help Greitens burnish his record for higher office.

"Women in Missouri already face some of nation’s most burdensome restrictions when it comes to accessing reproductive healthcare. Now, Gov. Greitens is trying to make it even more difficult to access basic care. This is a sad day for women and families across Missouri,” Dreith said in a statement issued Wednesday.

Alison Dreith, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Missouri, said in a statement that Greitens has been "wasting time and taxpayer dollars” as part of a cynical political calculation to ingratiate himself with GOP primary voters.
 
"Make no mistake, this has nothing to do with protecting women and everything to do with ripping away access to constitutionally protected health care,” Dreith said. "This entire emergency session was nothing more than free advertising for Greitens’ personal political ambitions, where women were treated as pawns to satisfy his desire for higher office.”
