Missouri voters will be asked to vote on several ballot initiatives on Nov. 8. As the president and vice president of AU’s St. Louis Chapter, we hope that Missourians will vote no on Amendment 3 because it would strip religious freedom protections from our state constitution.
Amendment 3 is officially titled the Early Childhood Health and Education Amendment. Its stated purpose is to improve health care and increase access to early childhood education opportunities by implementing a tax on cigarettes.
