Missouri Democratic Party nixes amendment welcoming pro-life candidates

August 14, 2018


Missouri Democrats have reversed course on welcoming pro-life candidates to the party, removing a newly added amendment in the party’s platform that respected differing opinions on the issue.

The Missouri Democratic Party’s central committee voted unanimously on Saturday to remove an amendment added in June that said the party respected “the conscience of each Missourian” and welcomed into its ranks “all Missourians who may hold differing positions” on abortion, The Kansas City Star reported.

The amendment was replaced with one that affirmed the party’s commitment to a “woman’s right to choose and the right of every person to their own bodily autonomy and to be free from government intrusion in medical decisions, including a decision to carry a pregnancy to term, and oppose any efforts to limit access to reproductive health care,” The Star reported.

Joan Barry, a former Democratic state lawmaker who introduced the pro-life amendment in June, said she was disappointed by the change.
