Governor Mike Parson (R) has signed the state budget that was developed in liaison with House and Senate leadership. Susan Klein, executive director of Missouri Right to Life, says the $6.46 million allocated for the Alternatives to Abortion Program is a blessing.

"It's the same amount of money that was in the budget last year," Klein notes. "As they have looked through the budget items dealing with COVID-19 and all that, they know that women are going to need that extra help, and they have not cut this budget line item at all."

Pro-life pregnancy centers are largely supported through donations, so the government funds will help bolster their efforts.

"Pregnancy resource centers can access this money. They can apply through a grant for the money, and it helps women during their pregnancies and allows them to have what they need as far as their healthcare coverage and also items they need for the baby," Klein explains.

The centers can also help with education, jobs, maternity clothing, and other expenses so the mothers can give their babies life.
