Members of the Missouri House have overwhelmingly approved a resolution expressing their opposition to the Freedom of Choice Act. The act has been discussed in Washington, but isn’t currently before Congress.
Rep. Bob Dixon (R-Springfield) sponsors HR294 and claims that if the Freedom of Choice Act were to be approved by Congress, it would wipe out virtually all the restrictions the state legislature has placed on abortions.
HR294 has been approved on a 116-40-2 vote. It has no legal weight. It merely expresses the opinion of the body.
