WorthyNews: Missouri abortion law critics won't seek signatures for vote

Recommended Posts

(Worthy News) - Critics of a new Missouri law that bans abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy say they won’t make a push to gather the signatures needed to block it pending a public vote, meaning it’s on course to take effect at the end of the month.

Opponents of the law sought a referendum in the hopes that voters would overturn it. But with only two weeks to gather the more than 100,000 voter signatures required to put it on the 2020 ballot, an American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri official says there’s simply not enough time.

“Our push now is to register voters for the 2020 election,” ACLU of Missouri Development Director Nicole Rainey said in a Thursday email. “Like I said - it is impossible to collect signatures within this timeframe.” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
