Missouri State Representative is an Embryo Vigilante

Surprise, surprise. Missouri’s state representatives are coming for our rights—again. This time, the threat comes in the form of an ultra-archaic resolution pushed forward by Republican Missouri Rep.

Despite anti-choice theatre like the Fortnight for Freedom, this veto should be easy for Governor Nixon.  He is a Democrat who ran as pro-choice ...
