The Missouri Senate Thursday passed a bill to ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy, following Alabama and Georgia, which both enacted similar bills in the past two weeks.
“The Republican-led Senate approved the legislation 24-10,” according to Fox News. “It needs at least another vote of approval in the House of Representatives, which is also led by Republicans, before it can head to Republican Gov. Mike Parson’s desk.”
Missouri’s bill will ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy, and does not include exceptions for rape or incest.
“The bill includes exceptions for medical emergencies — but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors who perform abortions after eight weeks face five to 15 years in prison, the report said.
Parsons reportedly called it “one of the strongest pro-life states in the country.”
The Missouri Senate passed the bill just hours after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey (R) signed into law a bill banning all abortions, except in cases where the life of the mother is in jeopardy.
Big League Politics reported:
Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law the country’s strictest pro-life legislation this afternoon, making history and marking a potential legal battle that could lead to the reexamination of Roe vs. Wade.
The newly minted bill will punish abortionists with up to 99 years in prison, and only makes exemptions for special cases where carrying the unborn baby to term would pose a risk to the life of the infant or the mother.
According to CBS17, the ban does not carry any type of fine or prison time for women receiving abortions, and instead levies punishment solely on medical professionals who provide abortions.
The American Civil Liberties Union and other groups have pledged to fight against the legislation, and Pat Robertson of “The 700 Club” slammed the law as “extreme” and said he does not expect it to succeed when taken to the Supreme Court.
Last week, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) signed into law a “heartbeat bill,” banning abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, which coincides with the first heartbeat of the child.

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.
