Another State Passes Near Abortion Ban

The Missouri state House on Friday voted overwhelmingly for a bill banning abortions in the state after eight weeks.

The Republican-led legislature passed the bill by a 110-44 vote. The bill already sailed through the state’s Republican-controlled Senate on Thursday in a 24-10 vote.

It now heads to the desk of Missouri Gov. Mike Parson (R), who is expected to sign it into law.

The governor has said the law would make Missouri “one of the strongest pro-life states in the country.”
