Missouri Personhood Constitutional Amendment (HJR 18)
This law was last updated on Dec 11, 2017
HJR 18 would, upon voter approval, amend the Constitution of Missouri to declare the following:
- That the term “person” under this constitution includes every human being, including every unborn human child at every stage of biological development from the moment of conception until birth.
- Nothing in this constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion.
If passed, this resolution would be submitted to the voters at the next general election to be held in Missouri, on Tuesday next following the first Monday in November, 2018, or at a special election to be called by the governor.
Similar to HJR 98, which failed to pass in 2016.
