Missouri passes restrictive abortion law

(SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) MISSOURI STATE LAWMAKER SAYING: "This legislation has one goal and that goal is to save lives." After contentious debate and interruptions, Missouri's Republican-led House on Friday passed a bill banning abortion after eight weeks of pregnancy, just days after Alabama's governor signed the nation's most restrictive abortion bill into law.

The bills approval in the Missouri House and Senate is the latest example of anti abortion legislation by state lawmakers... who feel emboldened by Republican appointees to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Just like the Alabama bill, Missouri's would outlaw abortion even in cases of rape or incest and includes jail time for doctors who violate the eight-week cut off.

The measure also plans for a future were Roe V Wade to be overturned.

In that case, there would be an outright ban on abortion unless the woman's life is in danger.

The Missouri bill now heads to Republican Governor Mike Parson's desk… who has pledged to sign it.
