Missouri Jumps In: Another State Joins Abortion Ban Movement

The state of Missouri has jumped onboard the anti-abortion band wagon by implementing a new law placing heavy restrictions on abortion.

Missouri’s Republican Gov. Mike Parson signed a bill outlawing abortion at eight weeks, with the exception for the life or risk of major harm to the mother, according to Daily Wire.

Critics are furious because the law has no exception for rape or incest, nor for physical disabilities of the fetus. Race-selective abortions are also banned.

Missouri Republicans feel that they have crafted the law to withstand legal challenges, but it is expected that liberals will take the law to court, anyway.

“If the eight-week ban is struck down, the bill includes a ladder of less-restrictive time limits at 14, 18 or 20 weeks,” Fox News reported.

The law also has a provision that if Roe v Wade is overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Missouri law will become a total abortion ban.

Responding to criticism over the lack of exceptions for abortion post-eight weeks, Gov. Parson argued that two months is enough time to decide to get an abortion, even in tough cases.

“Is it a terrible thing that happens in those situations? Yes it is,” the Republican acknowledged, according to Fox. “But the reality of it is bad things do happen sometimes. But you have two months to decide what you’re going to do with that issue, and I believe in two months you can make a decision.”

The law maintains that abortion providers will be sentenced to 15 years in prison for performing abortions. The law does not punish women for having an abortion.

Naturally, liberals are acting as if abortion is a “right” and a “health issue.” It is, of course, neither.
