The following statement is from Steve Rupp, President of Missouri Right to Life:
Today, the Missouri House third read and finally passed HB 126 by a vote of 117 to 39. This bill is the strongest pro-life bill ever attempted in the United States. It has multiple provisions including the Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act language, which bans abortion at 20 weeks when unborn children are capable of feeling pain. This language is in effect in 16 other states and should go into effect in Missouri shortly after it is signed by Governor Parson...
...The bill will now go to the Senate for consideration. We call upon our pro-life Senate to take up HB 126 as passed in the House, pass it and send it to the Governor’s desk.
