Missouri Governor Expected To Sign Eight-Week Abortion Ban Into Law

Missouri’s Republican governor could sign a law as early as this week banning most abortions in the Midwestern state after the eighth week of pregnancy.

The bill, part of a wave of restrictions aimed at driving a challenge of abortion to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Republican Governor Mike Parson told reporters on Friday he planned to sign the bill.

The bill was approved by the Republican-controlled state legislature last week and would enact one of the United States’ most restrictive bans.
