Regarding "Missouri Gov. Mike Parson signs bill banning abortions at eight weeks" (May 25): Each time I read Gov. Mike Parson's quote that "in Missouri we stand for life" my blood boils.
If we stood for life, we would have expanded Medicaid so that more Missourians would have access to health care. If we stood for life, we would fully fund the K-12 education formula so that all Missouri children would have access to a quality education.
So please, spare me the sanctimonious rhetoric. In Missouri we don't stand for life, we stand for birth.
