MISSOURI ABORTION REQUIREMENTS

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KTVI) – The Missouri house of representatives is considering a bill banning abortions performed solely because of the sex or a potential genetic abnormality of the fetus.

If it became law doctors who performed an abortion for either reason could face civil lawsuits and even criminal charges.

Americans United for Life says the Missouri bill is modeled after a proposal its also pursuing in other states.
