SeMo Senator Proposes Banning Most Abortions in Missouri

MARCH 2, 2006 - Posted at 8:07 a.m. CST

 

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - A Missouri lawmaker says it's time to outlaw most abortions in the state.

Republican state Senator Jason Crowell of Cape Girardeau is proposing a ballot measure banning abortions in Missouri except to prevent a woman's death.  Violators could be charged with a felony punishable by five to 15 years in prison.

If the Legislature endorses the idea, it would go on the November ballot.

The Legislature has a solid anti-abortion majority and has enacted various restrictions on the procedure over the years.

South Dakota lawmakers voted last week to ban abortions except those needed to save a woman's life.  Governor Mike Rounds has said he's inclined to sign the measure.
