SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) -

One day after calling a special session to vote on abortion-related legislation, Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens visited St. Louis on Thursday to highlight his position on the issue.

Greitens visited Our Lady’s Inn, a pro-life pregnancy care center in south St. Louis.

During the special session, lawmakers may consider a bill that would overturn a St. Louis City ordinance that bans discrimination based on reproductive choices or beliefs.

Critics say changing the law would be interfering local governments. Others have said the session would be a waste of money.

Greitens says a special session wouldn’t be very costly and that it is the duty of everyone to protect life.

The session is set to start on Monday.
