St. Louis, MO -  Events were scheduled across Missouri Thursday to protest Governor Blunt's health care cuts, set to take effect Friday.

Groups gathered in St. Louis, Jefferson City, and Kansas City to call attention to cuts that eventually will take Medicaid benefits away from more than 90 thousand recipients in Missouri.

At least two lawsuits have been filed challenging the cuts.
