Missouri Rep. Mike Moon Wants to Close the State’s Last Remaining Abortion Clinic
What War on Women?
In a recent letter to Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, Moon demands more action. “We have one remaining abortion clinic in St. Louis—I think it needs to shut down,” he wrote in the letter, summarized in this Facebook post.
Missouri is one of a handful of states that didn’t repeal abortion bans following Roe v. Wade. Moon — who, the Monett Times reports, is currently enrolled in a constitutional law class online at Patrick Henry College, in Virginia — thinks this means the state doesn’t have to comply with the federal abortion law. Maybe he will learn soon in his class that this is not how our government works. (Side note: Good to know Missouri is electing leaders who learn how government works on the job!) In the letter, Moon calls on Koster, as the highest law-enforcement officer in Missouri, to “enforce the law, protect the unborn, and close the remaining abortion clinic in our state.”
