Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey released the following statement after his office successfully defended Senate Bill 49:
“Missouri is the first state in the nation to successfully defend at the trial court level a law barring child mutilation. I’ve said from day one as Attorney General that I will fight to ensure that Missouri is the safest state in the nation for children. This is a huge step in that direction.
What a day.”
