While women in Missouri can no longer get an abortion, our civilized neighbors in Illinois still respect the full human rights of women and their right to choose what happens to their own bodies. Just over the river is the Hope Clinic and they need to be supported.

@dennyhenke I was born and raised in Missouri, lived there 24 years. I grew up in the bootheel. This year I’ve been out of Missouri for 24 years. I would never go back to live. That place is a cesspool.

@Ronnie Yeah, it's steeped in backwards thinking and superstition, especially the rural areas where I live. I've got elderly parents here but I've thought of leaving in the future. But then I also ask myself if I can be of use here to help those that can't leave but would like to. I'd be happier an perhaps more useful in other places.
