Missouri Governor Parson 'going to sign' abortion bill

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Missouri's Republican Governor Mike Parson on Friday said that while no date has been set for the official signing of a controversial abortion bill, he sides with the "pro-life" issue presented and intends to sign it.

Lawmakers in the Missouri state House of Representatives passed House Bill 126 by a vote of 110-44 moments before the close of session on Friday.

Missouri senators overwhelmingly approved the legislation early on Thursday.

Parson has previously said he would make Missouri "one of the strongest pro-life states in the country." In the bill, the only exclusion would be for medical emergencies.

On Wednesday, Alabama banned abortions at any time barring the same exception.
