Missouri Reading Restrictive Abortion Bill

On Friday, Missouri House lawmakers are expected to pass a bill to ban most abortions eight weeks after conception.

Reuters reports that this bill comes after Alabama's 6-week abortion ban bill.

Missouri senators overwhelmingly approved the legislation early on Thursday.

Republican Gov.

Mike Parson is expected to sign it into law.

He has said he would make Missouri β€œone of the strongest pro-life states in the country.” In the bill, the only exclusion would be for medical emergencies.
