Missouri is sending a message to women, and it is time for women to stop being silent about the issue. Women’s rights are at stake. The government should not legislate human bodies. If they do this cease to be a free society.
Missouri’s Republican-led Senate passed a bill to outlaw abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy. This happened hour after Alabama’s governor signed an abortion ban into law. However, the Missouri bill needs to have another vote of approval in the GOP-led House which is headed by Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who voiced support for this bill.
The bill would include exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. The doctor who performs an abortion would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff. The women who receive abortions would not be put on trial.
Republican Senate handler Sen. Andrew Koenig identified this bill as “one of the strongest” abortion bills yet passed in the U.S.
The state of Missouri has the most restricting abortion access regulations in the nation. Missourians in search of an abortion are open to a 72-hour postponing period and just one abortion clinic is present in the state.
Missouri joins an undertaking of GOP-dominated state legislatures encouraged by the probability that a more conservative Supreme Court may well reverse its milestone ruling legalizing the practice. Its senators voted 60 minutes after Alabama’s governor endorsed the most severe abortion prohibition in the country, making executing an abortion a crime in approximately all cases.
