BOOM: Missouri just passed one of the STRONGEST pro-life bills in the country!

I love to see so many states stepping up and passing serious pro-life legislation, and now Missouri is the latest ban abortions under penalty of law:

AP – Missouri’s Republican-led House on Friday passed sweeping legislation designed to survive court challenges, which would ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy.

If enacted, the ban would be among the most restrictive in the U.S. It includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff. Women who receive abortions wouldn’t be prosecuted.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson is expected to sign the bill.

Unlike Alabama’s pro-life law which was designed to create a challenge to Roe vs Wade, a Missouri House Republican said that wasn’t the goal of their legislation:

Missouri Republicans are taking a different approach.

GOP Rep. Nick Schroer said his legislation is “made to withstand judicial challenges and not cause them.”

“While others are zeroing in on ways to overturn Roe v. Wade and navigate the courts as quickly as possible, that is not our goal,” Schroer said. “However, if and when that fight comes we will be fully ready. This legislation has one goal, and that goal is to save lives.”



The bill is tiered with pro-life bans on abortions after certain periods of time.

The most restrictive, an outright ban on abortions won’t actually go into effect unless Roe vs Wade is overturned:

Missouri’s bill also includes an outright ban on abortions except in cases of medical emergencies. But unlike Alabama’s, it would kick in only if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

If courts don’t allow Missouri’s proposed eight-week ban to take effect, the bill includes a ladder of less-restrictive time limits that would prohibit abortions at 14, 18 or 20 weeks or pregnancy.

What I find amazing is how the left is outraged over just how ‘extreme’ the right has become against abortions, when in reality we are the only ones protecting life. And if that makes us ‘extreme’, that’s fine with me.

  1. Personally I love seeing the left lose its collective mind over these new laws. I don’t know if they never studied history but women weren’t getting thrown in prison or dying in epidemic numbers when abortions weren’t legal in most states. They were smarter about sex, excepted responsibility for their actions and had their babies or gave them up for adoption. Sure there was poverty and some children were abused but probably in no greater numbers than occurs today, maybe in even fewer numbers. I guess the idea of taking responsibility for your choices is too much of a cross for the left to bear.

  2. Hear, hear! Keep working and keep praying. We still have a long way to go, but this is wonderful news. Thank God!

  3. The Republicans put an end to slavery and now they are going to put an end to the national disgrace of baby murders.

  6. I support honest abortion laws designed to stay laws that protect babies. That Alabama law sucks and just picks fights and saves not one child. It makes me sick to see our side so devalue life that the fight is more important than lives saved…

    Good Job Missouri.

  8. I believe Trump sealed the deal on McCaskill’s fate when he campaigned heavily in Missouri for Josh Hawley. McCaskll was a huge supporter of pro-abortion and Planned Parenthood.A huge win for the President

  9. I really hope we’re getting the timing right here. If this goes to the SC, we can’t rely on Roberts, and Kavanaugh has not been tested on this issue yet.

    1. Keep going, regardless. Let the Supreme Court enforce their abhorrent rulings. An unjust law is no law at all. And laws that don’t recognize the humanity of the unborn are unjust laws.

  11. The more this happens, the higher the likelihood SCOTUS will be forced to revisit & pray God overturn Roe v. Wade.

    When that happens, the pro-abortion side will be forced to make a legal argument as to how stopping a heart that’s not the mother’s own, but inside her womb is NOT killing a unique sentient living being.

    I’ve said this before…science may have been on the pro-abortion side for many years, but now with new medical advances & miracles not available decades ago, it’s not only on our side in spades, but more & more people are realizing it & becoming pro-life.

    KEEP THIS UP!!!

  12. If liberal states can legalize infanticide then why can’t conservative states protect life if that’s what the voters want to do? And how is killing babies not extreme but sparing their lives deemed extreme? It’s a backward-assed world. If anything, this sends a clear message to return the power to the states. With so many laws that are going to be passed and challenged, I don’t see how SCOTUS can avoid taking this up. Who knows how it’ll rule because we can’t count on people who vow to uphold the Constitution to actually do just that.

  13. This rape exception thing is really getting me thinking. If one is raped, they don’t take 8 weeks to find out if they got AIDS/HIV or other STD from the rape. Why wait to see if got pregnant. A rape victim should get checked at the hospital within hours and may even start a HIV prevention drug as well as get the morning after pill.

    To me if implantation does not happen there is no need for an abortion weeks or months later. That is what the morning after pill prevents. The morning after pill should be as easy to get as condoms.

    1. I always thought that the morning after pill does not ‘prevent implantation’ it just kills faster.

      1. Y’all made me curious and this is what I found. The morning after pill can work in 3 ways:
        1. The normal menstrual cycle is altered, delaying ovulation; or
        2. Ovulation is inhibited, meaning the egg will not be released from the ovary;
        3. It can irritate the lining of the uterus (endometrium) so as to inhibit implantation

        1. If what you say is true, @squirrelly (and this is basically what I’ve heard too), then the “morning after” pill prevents conception as a form of contraception, albeit one that should be used in exceptional circumstances, but it is NOT the taking of a human life.

          Maybe an “unintended consequence” of this new law would be that raped women would be MORE likely to come forward and report their rape (especially in today’s MeToo era) and would they could get checked out as @t_j suggested above. You never know, it could happen.

          1. I copied and pasted that part so going to go with that’s how it works, and you’re right about that unintended consequence. That would be a win for pro-life. I had never taken into consideration what @t_j said when it comes to rape. It makes sense.

        2. If true, the third case would constitute an abortion, since conception would have already occurred.

          1. How does someone know which method worked? They don’t. Honestly, if I were raped and that pill was offered to me, I’d take it, say a prayer, and hope it was method one or two that worked or that it just wasn’t a fertile time for me. There are high chances that it doesn’t act as an abortifacient. Just my thinking.

  14. This is kind of a chickenshit bill. They won’t join the fight against Roe, but are ready to reap the rewards if it is overturned.

    1. I’m normally not a fan of incrementalism as a means of combating abortion, anyone will to kill babies in the womb for profit are willing to lie on a form about how far along a pregnancy is. However, I think this is kind of smart.

      It effectively makes Missouri automatically have the best abortion law allowed by the courts. If Roe gets overturned, it instantly blocks all abortion. If not then its multi-tiered approach guarantees the fewest weeks allowed before abortion is banned.

      I’m glad Alabama is challenging Roe directly, but I’m happy with the Missouri bill too.

  15. Another win for Good and another stop for our nation back to God. Please God bless us and bring us back to you.

  16. The tide is turning! I expect all this eventually will go to the Supreme Court, and we will have a shot of overturning RvW. Maybe I’m being overly optimistic, but I really feel we are witnessing a groundswell starting to happen.

  17. Heck Liberal Utopia France bans abortion after the 12th week unless 2 doctors certify the pregnancy continuing is a grave risk to the health of the mother.
