From the Office of Representative Kathryn Swan
June 28, 2014
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Kathryn Swan (R-Cape Girardeau) has received the endorsement of the Missouri Right to Life PAC for the 2014 primary and general elections.
Missouri Right to Life is a state-wide pro-life advocacy organization dedicated to promoting the right to life for all persons, especially those who are unborn, disabled or elderly.
The letter states, "In addition to survey responses and pro-life involvement in the community, we also consider past pro-life leadership, sponsorship and voting records both in committee and on the floor."
Rep. Swan was the sponsor of HB 1478 relating to the protection of women's health care and participated in floor debate in support of other pro-life measures during the past two legislative sessions. HB 1478 was a priority of Missouri Right to Life and was voted out of the House Committee on Health Policy. The goal of the bill was to provide the best health care available for everyone regardless of gender or procedure.
