Two U.S. House incumbents endorsed by Missouri’s leading abortion rights advocacy organization

SAINT LOUIS, Mo. — Abortion Action Missouri has announced its endorsement of U.S. House of Representatives incumbents Cori Bush (D-St. Louis-MO-01) and Emmanuel Cleaver, II (D-Kansas City-MO-05) in their bids for re-election.

Congresswoman Bush remarked, “I am beyond proud to receive the endorsement of Abortion Action Missouri in my bid for reelection to Congress. As someone who has had abortions, the fight to protect our fundamental right to bodily autonomy and reproductive freedom is personal, and it starts right here at home in Missouri.”

Abortion Action Missouri Executive Director Mallory said, “Missouri has a reproductive freedom champion in Congresswoman Bush. An advocate, activist, storyteller, and action-taker, Congresswoman Bush is the pro-abortion leader fit for this moment. Abortion Action Missouri is proud to endorse her candidacy for re-election and to continue our working partnership to defend and advance reproductive freedom across our state and at the nation’s Capitol.”

I am honored and humbled to receive the endorsement for my 2024 Re-Election for Congress to continue representing our shared views by the Abortion Action Missouri PAC. I applaud the group’s unwavering work in fighting for reproductive health choices for Missourians. All freedoms must be guaranteed for all,” said U.S. Representative Emmanuel Cleaver, II.

In closing, “Right now, we’re waiting for a corrupt unelected court to hand down another ruling threatening access to basic reproductive healthcare. It is essential we have pro-reproductive freedom leaders in Congress who represent the majority of Missourians and commit to fighting for our right to access abortion and all sexual and reproductive health care,” said Schwarz.

The Abortion Action Missouri PAC will continue to release more endorsements in the coming weeks. If you are running for office and are interested in applying, please visit
