Missouri Republican says some rapes are 'consensual' during abortion debate

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) After debate in the Missouri state House of Representatives on Friday, lawmakers passed House Bill 126 by a vote of 110-44.

Missouri senators overwhelmingly approved the legislation on Thursday.

In the bill, the only exclusion would be for medical emergencies.

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