AG Schmitt Threatens to Sue Cities, Counties Funding Travel for Abortions

Attorney General Eric Schmitt wants to stop Missouri cities and counties from using taxpayer dollars to pay for travel to other states for abortions. 

The A-G’s office warns in a news release that using taxpayer dollars, American Rescue Plan Act funds or other revenue to fund abortions is “plainly illegal” under Missouri law.  

Schmitt says,” St. Louis City and County, Kansas City, and any others who attempt to authorize taxpayer-funded abortions will be met with a lawsuit.”  

A Kansas City ordinance would reimburse city employees needing to travel to another state to get an abortion.   

The U-S Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade triggered Missouri’s law banning abortions not necessary to save the life of the mother.
