Missouri Governor Expected to Sign New Abortion Restrictions Into Law

According to Reuters, 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.

Republican Governor Mike Parson told reporters on Friday he planned to sign the bill, which was approved by the Republican-controlled state legislature last week and would enact one of the United States’ most restrictive bans.

A spokeswoman in his office said that Parson has not yet set a date for the signing.
