Abortion, social issues among hot topics in 50th race


The state Senate will be in session Monday for members to debate a bill imposing new regulations on abortion clinics, expanding the power of the attorney general to enforce abortion laws and limiting the scope of local anti-discrimination laws.The final vote, when it comes, is expected to be along party lines and because Republicans hold a 24-9 margin, there is little doubt in the outcome. When the Missouri House approved the bill 110-38 on June 20, only two Democrats supported it and only one Republican was opposed.The winner of the Aug. 8 special election in the 50th Missouri House District won’t be elected in time to vote on bills in the current special session. But abortion and other social issues aren’t going away, and voters have distinct choices in the contest between Democrat Michela Skelton and Republican Sara Walsh.
