Teresa Parson is Mike Parson’s wife. Mike Parson is the governor of Missouri. On Thursday, May 16, Parson signaled his support of an eight-week abortion ban for the state, with no exclusions for victims of rape or incest.
The ban is just the latest in a new wave of anti-abortion efforts passed by several states in recent years, as a direct effort to challenge the veracity of Roe v. Wade on the Supreme Court level. To be clear, abortion is still legal in all 50 states, including Missouri. Still, both Parson and his wife, Teresa, have made their pro-life inclinations abundantly clear over the years.
Teresa is a member of the First Baptist Church and is pro-life. Here’s what you need to know:

On May 15, Teresa signaled her full support of her husband’s decision to sign an eight-week abortion ban for the state of Missouri. She wrote, “I fully support my husband, @GovParsonMO, on his pro-life stand! All human life is sacred at every stage! #MissouriProud #ProLife”
Her husband, too, celebrated the ban on his own Twitter account. He wrote, “Thanks to decades of conservative, pro-life leadership, Missouri recently hit an ALL-TIME low for the number of abortions. We’ve gone from a high of more than 20,000 in our state, to now below 3,000 — we still have more work to do!”
Additionally, leading up to the passing of the abortion ban, Parson tweeted, “It’s time to make Missouri the most Pro-Life state in the country! Thanks to leaders in the House and Senate, we are one vote away from passing one of the strongest #ProLife bills in the country – standing for life, protecting women’s health, and advocating for the unborn.”
