Mike Kehoe on Abortion



Plans to vigorously defend state's abortion restrictions

If Kehoe wins the GOP primary, it's highly possible he would be running while an initiative to legalize abortion is on the ballot. Kehoe said he plans to help vigorously defend the restrictions Republicans have enacted. "It's something that we're going to defend and defend until we don't know how to do it anymore," Kehoe said.

Missouri has moved the needle in protecting life

Hundreds of Missourians gathered at the capitol to protest abortion in Missouri. Kehoe said it was important for him to be there and show his support. He noted Missouri has been a leader in pro-life initiatives. "Missouri has moved the needle so well in protecting life just a decade ago the numbers and statistics we had on abortion each year was very sad and every year we've decreased and decreased and decreased those numbers," he said.

Most innocent person you can protect is in the womb

[On the unborn]: "The most fundamental, innocent person that you can protect is that person in the womb that can't speak for themselves," Kehoe said. "Way before politics, I've been involved with multiple organizations, both in the community and statewide. . We really believe in the passionate plea that that person that can't speak for themselves has, and I think as elected officials we're the person that needs to speak for that person."
