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.

Powerful Homily: Catholic Priest Rebukes Members of the Church Who Ignored Religious Freedom, Voted for Joe Biden
This priest isn’t cowing before the pro-abortion Left.
Father Jeffrey Kirby of the Diocese of Charleston delivered a powerful homily rebuking members of the Church who voted for Joe Biden last week.
Father Kirby began his homily telling the account of St. Thomas Becket, a 12th century English bishop who was murdered in his cathedral for upholding the rights of the Church in defiance of governmental mandates. Kirby compared Becket’s opponents to Catholics who supported Biden, who is likely to continue in the vein of governmental impositions and infringements on religious liberty seen from President Obama’s administration.
Watch Father Kirby’s full homily here.
“Some of you, I know, voted for someone who is now going to suffer and persecute the Church for the next four years…
That on top of the fact that he supports the slaughter of the unborn!
What have you done! What have you done to your Church! Look, and watch, as our religious sisters are dragged through the courts! As contraception is imposed upon them! Watch as our hospitals disappear. Because we will not follow government dictates.”
Biden, who styles himself as a Catholic despite support for unlimited abortion and homosexualism, benefited from the support of more religious Catholics and Evangelical Christians than previous Democrat candidates for President. Father Kirby made sure that those who thought allusions to “tone” and decorum were more important than fundamental Catholic moral teachings on life understood the errors of their ways.
“And those of you who voted for such an administration… bear responsibility, for what you have done. Because we are in for it, folks. And they are already getting ready for it.”
Some high-ranking bishops of the American Catholic Church even went so far as to appear to outright endorse Joe Biden, a development unprecedented for a presidential candidate promising full support for an unlimited abortion agenda.
“Never forget, that the spiritual mystics tell us, that the pavements of hell are paved with the skulls of bishops. I preach the truth. So those of you who are entrusted to my care- you know what we believe as Catholics. You know what the true religion calls for. And I want to make sure that I speak it-even if every one of you denies it.“
