Missouri Legislators Consider New Abortion Bill

Missouri legislators are considering another abortion bill. A measure to extend the mandatory waiting period prior to an abortion to 72 hours is among over 20 other measures involving abortion before the State Legislature. Most of the bills come with new restrictions and rules which zero in on the process a woman has to go through in order to have an abortion. More than two dozen states have a waiting period before an abortion but just Utah and South Dakota require women to wait 72 hours.
