Abortion exhibit thats what Missouri Capitol museum needs, lawmaker says

JEFFERSON CITY -- On a walk through the first-floor Missouri State Museum in the Capitol building, visitors see tributes to Missouri industry, veterans, Native Americans and slavery.

If Rep. Mike Moon has his way, right next to those exhibits will be one on the history of abortion.
Rep. Mike Moon

Moon, an Ash Grove Republican, on Wednesday introduced the “Never Again Act,” which proposes that an exhibit showcasing abortion tools be added to the Capitol museum.

The legislation specifies that this exhibit must be near the exhibit on slavery. Its name draws references from the Holocaust.

“The number of lives lost by abortion is more than we lost during slavery and during the Holocaust,” Moon said in a statement. “We need to start looking at abortion in the same light as we do both of those tragic events.”

1. This makes me physically ill...

One of the most powerful moments in my medical training was a lecture given by the chair of OB/GYN where she's showed us these old slides on an old school projector of pictures of complications from "back alley" abortions prior to Row V Wade. That lecture was heartbreaking and grueling but it solidified my support for choice and safe abortions.
