Abortion exhibit — that's what Missouri Capitol museum needs, lawmaker says


Abortion exhibit â that's what Missouri Capitol museum needs, lawmaker says
Kansas City Star

On a walk through the first-floor Missouri State Museum in the Capitol building, visitors see tributes to Missouri industry, veterans, Native Americans and slavery. If Rep. Mike Moon has his way, right next to those exhibits will be one on the history of abortion. Moon, an Ash Grove Republican, on Wednesday introduced the âNever Again Act,â which proposes that an exhibit showcasing abortion tools be added to the Capitol museum. The legislation specifies that this exhibit must be near the exhibit on slavery. Its name draws references from the Holocaust. âThe number of lives lost by abortion is more than we lost during slavery and during the Holocaust,â Moon said in a statement. âWe need to start looking at abortion in the same light as we do both of those tragic events.âThis isnât the first time Moon has drawn comparisons between abortion and the Holocaust.
