  • nullify longstanding Missouri law protecting the right to life, including but not limited to partial-birth abortion;
  • allow for laws to be enacted regulating abortion procedures after 24 weeks, while guaranteeing the right of any woman, including a minor, to end the life of their unborn child at any time; and

Do you want to amend the Missouri Constitution to:

  • allow any K-12 student in the state to attend any charter, private or public school outside of the district of their home residence who meet certain academic, attendance and disciplinary requirements;
  • allow for acceptance criteria by the receiving school for grades K-5 and grades 6-12; and

Public school districts expect an unknown fiscal impact that could be significantly negative for any district that experiences a large decrease in enrollment.
