MISSOURI (KFVS) - Advocates with Planned Parenthood in Missouri issued a statement following an abortion bill passed by the state Senate.
House Bill 126 passed in the Mo. Senate on May 16.
Mo. Governor Parson showed his support for the bill online.
The organization called the bill dangerous and extreme.
Organization officials said the state is becoming part of a national trend of extreme politicians pushing abortion band in defiance of the American people.
Officials said 15 state bans on abortion have passed so far in 2019. Those states include Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Ohio have passed extreme and unconstitutional bans, essentially outlawing all abortion.
Missouri’s law would be among the most restrictive banning abortion as early as eight weeks into a pregnancy.
