Missouri House Passes Bill: Boldest Stand for Pro-Life in the Country
[Calvin Freiburger | LifeSiteNews] This week, the Missouri House overwhelmingly passed what has been called the strongest pro-life bill in America, in the form of legislation that combines almost every pro-life legislative proposal in the current session.
The House voted 117-39 for the omnibus Wednesday, The Kansas City Star reported, after “two days of circuitous, occasionally bizarre, often deeply-personal and impassioned debate.”
House Bill 126 contains the previously introduced ban on aborting babies with detectable heartbeats and requirement for two-parent parental notification, and adds a ban on abortions motivated by a baby’s race, sex, or Down syndrome, as well as “trigger” language that would automatically ban abortion once Roe v. Wade is overturned.
“What is this thing in a woman’s body?” asked Republican state Rep. Mike Moon. “I believe the answer is that it’s a human. I believe when we’re talking about a human life, how barbaric is it to consider snuffing out a human life before it has a chance to breathe on its own?”
The bill now moves on to the state Senate, which Republicans also control 24-10, but where Democrats plan to mount a filibuster in hopes of derailing it. “Oh hell yeah,” Democrat state Sen. Jamilah Nasheed said earlier this month of whether his party would use the tactic.
