Current Bill Summary

SCS/SJRs 52 & 53 - This constitutional amendment, if adopted by the voters, establishes the "Protect Children First" provision of the Constitution and recognizes that children are the future of Missouri and are a blessing and gift from Almighty God. The strength and success of Missouri is dependent on healthy and happy children and their mothers and families, as well as on stable home lives. It is the public policy of Missouri to give special consideration to the care of our children, born and unborn, especially those children who are orphans, children in foster care, and children who have been abused. Nothing in the Constitution shall be construed to secure or protect a right to abortion, or to require the funding of abortion by taxpayers or by any other means. The General Assembly shall have the authority to enact laws and make appropriations to carry out the provisions of this amendment.
