A pro-life group in Missouri contends that a recent ruling demonstrates that the courts are supporting abortion at the expense of the people.
Under Missouri law, it is clearly stated that state funds are not to be used for abortion – a fact that is impressed by Susan Klein of Missouri Right to Life.
“We're a pro-life state,” Klein stressed to OneNewsNow. “Our legislators have put pro-life protections in our appropriation budget bills for years to make sure that we, as pro-life people, do not have to pay for abortions.”
Regardless, the highest court in the “Show Me State” saw things differently and took the law into its own hands – to the elation of the world’s largest abortion provider.
The Missouri Supreme Court has ruled in a 6 to 1 decision that that is unconstitutional, and the state must resume sending money to Planned Parenthood, and Klein says that's a big disappointment.
Due to this controversial ruling, it appears that the democratic process is being overridden by abortion activists in a pro-life state.
“Once again, unelected judges are telling Missouri citizens that we have to pay for abortions,” Klein lamented. “It's just outrageous.”
This is apparently contrary to the wishes of pro-life Missouri citizens who have continually elected pro-life candidates to top state positions, the legislature and Congress.
“And I don't believe that our elected officials – that pro-lifers have sent to Jefferson City and also to Washington – I don't think they're going to lay down for these decisions,” Klein foretold. “They're not going to let the courts decide what is the right thing to do – as far as protection of women and unborn babies – because they're showing that they don't care.
Klein adds the courts are protecting the abortion industry at all costs.”
