Missouri will be the first state in the country to end abortion entirely. Attorney General Eric Schmitt has shared his opinion.
Attorney General Merrick Garland has spoken against the Supreme Court ruling overturning abortion rights.
The Supreme Court has eliminated an established right that has been an essential component of women’s liberty for half a century – a right that has safeguarded women’s ability to participate fully and equally in society.
