Missouri Gov. Mike Parsons Friday signed into law a bill that bans most abortions, following suit with Georgia and Alabama.
According to several sources, the law, set to go into effect on Aug. 28, bans abortions after eight weeks, and has no exceptions for rape or incest.
The bill is part of a larger trend of state’s legislating to protect the sanctity of life. Last week, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed a similar law into effect in her state. Alabama’s pro-life legislation was met with fierce backlash from the political left, with figures like former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden calling for the reversal of the law.
Georgia was the first state to enact such legislation to protect the unborn, when Gov. Brian Kemp signed into law a “heartbeat bill,” banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, shortly after the time period in which a baby’s heart begins beating.
Big League Politics reported:
The governor of Georgia kept his promise to sign a pro-life bill into law, signaling significant support for the pro-life community.
Gov. Brian Kemp signed the Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act, passed in both chambers of the Georgia Congress, which “will prohibit abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, as early as six weeks into a pregnancy,” according to Fox News.
The law is nicknamed “the heartbeat bill” because it bans abortions after a baby’s heart begins to beat. There are exceptions for cases of rape, incest, and if the mother’s life is in danger.
“Georgia is a state that values life,” Kemp reportedly said just before signing the bill. “We stand up for those who are unable to speak for themselves.”
All three states to pass pro-life laws have Republican majorities in both chambers of their respective Congresses, and a Republican governor.

President Donald Trump Pledges to “Fully Defund” Planned Parenthood If Reelected
Trump has governed as the most pro-life President in history.
President Trump is pledging to fully defund abortion giant Planned Parenthood during his tentative second term in office, making a pledge in a letter to the Pro-Life Voices for Trump coalition. In the letter, the President also touts the pro-life accomplishments of his administration.
The President breaks down how he’s “proudly governed as the most pro-life president in our nation’s history.”
The President touts his administration’s appointment of hundreds of pro-life judges, partial defunding of the abortion industry including Planned Parenthood, the barring of federal medical research facilities from using materials obtained from the bodies of aborted children, and the defense of personal conscience rights of physicians, medical personnel, and other professionals. Congressional Democrats have largely blocked a full defunding of Planned Parenthood, which continues to perform more abortions than any other organization in the country.
The President also touts his support for the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most late-term abortions.
Joe Biden, who is largely running for President on the basis of his supposedly impeccable and virtuous character, has supported total and unlimited legalization of abortion throughout his entire political career. The nominal Catholic went so far as to quote Pope St. John Paul II in a recent campaign ad, a nod to Catholic voters, all while silently disregarding his commitment to abortion on demand.
