Missouri archdiocese seeks override of governor's veto on conscience-protection bill
July 13, 2012
The Archdiocese of St. Louis is encouraging Missouri legislators to override a veto by Governor Jay Nixon and enact legislation that would protect insurance buyers from being required to pay for contraception, abortion, and other morally objectionable procedures.
Governor Nixon’s decision to veto the bill, the archdiocese said, was “a profound missed opportunity to assert conscience rights for Missouri citizens when those rights are in jeopardy from the federal HHS (Health and Human Service) mandate."
