Senate Wants To Make Missouri Latest State To Substantially Curtail Abortion

Updated at 6:15 p.m. on Wednesday with comments from Gov. Parson and GOP lawmakers:

Missouri senators are considering a restrictive abortion bill which bans the procedure after a heartbeat or brain activity is detected ó likely around eight weeks.

It could make Missouri the latest state with a GOP-controlled Legislature to pass such a measure, a move that will almost certainly spark years of litigation that go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

If that eight-week ban is struck down, thereís language in the bill that would increase the amount of time a woman could get an abortion. The first tier is 14 weeks. If thatís overturned by a court, the state would have an 18-week ban. And if that doesnít hold up, Missouri would bar abortions after 20 weeks.

Also, the legislation would, with the exception of medical emergencies, ban abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned.
