Missouri Personhood Constitutional Amendment (HJR 53)
This law was last updated on Dec 5, 2018
HJR 53 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 preborn 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.
