“Drawing jeers from abortion rights activists seated in the Missouri House, lawmakers on Friday approved a sweeping piece of anti-abortion legislation, a bill that would ban most abortions in the state of Missouri,” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
“The final vote was 110-44, and the proposal now heads to Gov. Mike Parson (R) who is expected to sign the measure.”
“The bill bans abortions in the state of Missouri at eight weeks of pregnancy, except when the life of the mother is threatened. There are no exceptions for rape, incest or human trafficking.”
