Governor Parson Signs HB 2634 into Law, Prohibiting Public Funds to Abortion Providers

MAY 9, 2024

 — Today, during a signing ceremony at the State Capitol, Governor Mike Parson signed HB 2634 into law. While public funds are already prohibited from funding abortions in Missouri, HB 2634 will now prevent any taxpayer money from going to any abortion providers or their affiliates in the state.

"Our administration has been the strongest pro-life administration in Missouri history," Governor Parson said. "We've ended all elective abortions in this state, approved new support for mothers, expecting mothers, and children, and, with this bill, ensured that we are not sending taxpayer dollars to abortion providers for any purpose. We thank members of the General Assembly for recognizing this important issue and sending this legislation to my desk."

HB 2634 will ensure that no abortion providers or their affiliates receive reimbursements through the MO HealthNet program.
