Stand Up for Birth Control: Sustain Governor Nixon’s Veto of SB749

Progress Missouri released a video today showcasing voices from across Missouri calling on the General Assembly to stand up for access to birth control by sustaining Governor Nixon’s veto of SB749. The online video features women of diverse backgrounds and faiths who all believe that our employers should not have a say in families’ birth control decisions.  

Birth control is an important part of basic health care for women, and an economic issue for Missouri families.  

Birth control is a pocketbook issue for Missouri women and should be fully covered by insurance no matter where they work. Politicians, employers and insurers should not be making health care decisions for the women and families of Missouri.

Your legislators need to hear from you TODAY: Stand up for birth control, sustain the Governor’s veto of SB749.
