Missouri lawmakers approve bill to ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy
18 May 2019, 04:02 | Glen Norman
The ban would be among the most restrictive in the U.S. It would include exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff.
Ms Warren added Congress should go beyond abortion and also ensure access to birth control, comprehensive sex education and care for pregnant women.
ABC affiliate KMIZ reports that the House passed the bill Friday afternoon with a vote of 110-44 and it has been sent to Gov. Mike Parson, a Republican, who has the option to sign it into law.
Missouri's House voted 110-44 in favor of the legislation. The Margaret Atwood book and subsequent Hulu TV series depicts a dystopian future where fertile women are forced to breed.
Her proposals come as Missouri joins Alabama, Georgia and other states in advancing laws that limit abortion access - with Alabama's law drawing skepticism from some anti-abortion Republicans as too draconian, given its lack of an exception for cases of rape or incest.
Congressional Democrats reacted to Alabama's new ban on abortion by arguing that the bill will effectively kill people. The measure passed in Missouri's Republican-led Senate yesterday. "And because these federal protections would be valid on a variety of constitutional grounds - including equal protection and the commerce clause - they would ensure that choice would remain the law of the land even if the SupremeCourt overturns Roe". "This legislation has one goal, and that goal is to save lives".
Earlier this month, Georgia passed similar legislation, banning all abortions after six weeks, following similar laws in MS and Ohio. Some of those laws already have been challenged in court, and similar restrictions in North Dakota and Iowa previously were struck down by judges.
The Missouri House passed a bill on Friday banning abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, making it the latest USA state to pass restrictions on ending a pregnancy. After the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade in 1973, Biden said a woman shouldn't have the "sole right to say what should happen to her body".
The movement in Missouri comes two days after the governor of Alabama passed a near-total ban on abortions in the state. "First, they must prohibit states from interfering in the ability of a health care provider to provide medical care, including abortion services".
Roughly 6,700 abortions were performed in 2017, the most recent year available, according to the Alabama Center for Health Statistics. Of those, 1,673 occurred at under nine weeks and 119 occurred at 20 weeks or later in a pregnancy.
