The following statement can be attributed to Pam Fichter, President of Missouri Right to Life:  

 

Missouri Right to Life looks forward to the October 10th implementation of the 72-hour reflection period for women considering an abortion.  We know that when mothers have the time to review all of their options, they are more likely to choose life for their unborn child. Missouri is blessed with many organizations seeking to help women in crisis pregnancies. The additional time allowed by this law provides opportunities for mothers to seek the assistance they need to bring a healthy baby into the world.  Missouri Right to Life again thanks the Missouri legislators who worked and supported the passage of this legislation and to all those who voted to override Governor Nixon’s veto. This legislation will save many lives and will maintain Missouri’s position as one of the most pro-life states in the country.
