SB 217 - This act establishes the Missouri Respect Life Commission and the Missouri Alternatives to Abortion Fund. The Commission consists of thirteen members, four appointed from the General Assembly and one member from each of the nine congressional districts. Duties of the Commission are specified, including disbursement of funds from the Alternatives to Abortion Fund which the act creates and which is funded through contributions of $25 or more by vehicle owners who will then receive "Respect Life License Plates."

The Director of Revenue is required to make available, upon request by any member of the General Assembly, the names and addresses of contributors to the Alternatives to Abortion Fund from that member's district.

The Commission is required to submit an annual report of its activities to the President pro tem of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Representatives and the Governor prior to January thirty-first of each year.
