Abortion businesses in Missouri can no longer receive Medicaid funding thanks to a bill signed by Gov. Mike Parson today. HB 2634 passed by large margins in the House and the Senate following the release of a video where Planned Parenthood was allegedly caught attempting to traffick a child out of state.

In the footage, a Great Plains employee allegedly offered to help a man transport his 13-year-old girl girlfriend to a Kansas Planned Parenthood facility for an abortion, saying, “We never tell the parents anything. She’s an adult in our clinics.” Attorney General Andrew Bailey has since filed a lawsuit for violation of parental consent. “This is the beginning of the end of Planned Parenthood in the State of Missouri,” AG Bailey said on X.

Dealt these major blows by Republicans, Planned Parenthood is backing the Missouri abortion ballot measure to mandate taxpayer funding for abortion and eliminate the state’s parental consent laws. The ballot measure would also allow all-trimester abortion and remove health and safety regulations on Planned Parenthood, which had to close a facility in 2018 for using moldy abortion equipment on women for months.

Sue Liebel, midwest regional director for SBA Pro-Life America, shared her reaction:

“We applaud Gov. Parson and Republicans for standing up for the rights of girls and parents against the predatory abortion industry. Parents have the right to have a say in their daughters’ lives and to protect them from the abusers and sex traffickers Planned Parenthood allegedly enables. We must continue to fight for parents as Planned Parenthood attempts to put an abortion measure on the ballot to wipe parental consent off the books and remove health and safety regulations that protect women and girls.”
