Email From the ACLU regarding Missouri's anti-abortion law


ACLU of Missouri
Dear Member,

Earlier this week, we submitted a referendum petition with the Missouri Secretary of State to bring Missouri’s anti-abortion law before the voters.

This is a bold first step. The referendum will need to be certified for circulation and then over 100,000 signatures will need to be gathered to place the issue on the ballot. Once the signatures are submitted, the law cannot go into effect until a statewide vote has been made. A simple majority vote will veto the law.

Once the petition is certified and made available, we will be asking you to sign and help us gather signatures. In the meantime, here are 3 ways you can take action today:

Sign up to volunteer. We’re going to need all the help we can get to collect 100,000 signatures.
File a public comment with the Missouri Secretary of State. The secretary of state is reviewing our referendum petition. We need his approval before we can begin to collect signatures. Tell him that restricting access to abortion after eight weeks, before some people even know they are pregnant, is both dangerous and unconstitutional. This is a decision that should be left to the people of Missouri.
Ask your friends to join the fight. Share the message on Facebook and Twitter.
Remember: the ACLU was made for moments like these. We are here to fight.

Thanks for sticking with us,

Sara Baker
Legislative and Policy Director, ACLU of Missouri

1. "This is a decision that should be left to the *people* of Missouri"?

It's a decision that should be left to the women of Missouri, specifically the pregnant ones.

The rest of y'all can get lost.

2. Granted, however

This seems to be the method to push back on this legislation at the moment so one does what one can.
