TESTIMONY OF MISSOURI RIGHT TO LIFE
BEFORE THE HOUSE HEALTH CARE POLICY COMMITTEE
IN SUPPORT OF HJR 19
March 13, 2013
Missouri Right to Life would like to go on record in support of HJR 19.
This resolution puts before the voters a constitutional amendment which specifies that every citizen has the liberty to make autonomous decisions regarding their own health care services. And, that no government official or agency will have authority to force any person, employer, or health care provider to participate in a specific system. And, that a citizen will not be penalized for not participating in a socialized health care system.
Missouri Right to Life does not support requirements from the federal or state government that rations health care or forces citizens to participate in programs that includes drugs or devices that take innocent human lives.
HJR 19 would allow the citizens to speak out on these issues that have grave consequences for the lives of innocent human beings. Therefore we support HJR 19.
