Missouri Rejects Federal Money In Order To Set Up Its Own Abortion Restrictions


Missouri Rejects Federal Money In Order To Set Up Its Own Abortion Restrictions
Kaiser Health News

Hospitals in Missouri are grappling with a new state rule that forces them to choose between providing abortions for women in high-risk situations or receiving family planning funds for low-income women.The policy could affect women like Robin Utz, 37, who had struggled with infertility for years. After two rounds of in vitro fertilization, she finally became pregnant.But at a routine 20-week ultrasound, the nurse fell silent and said she needed to bring in the doctor. The baby had developed polycystic kidney disease, and the baby’s kidneys werenât working, the doctor told the couple.âThere was therefore no amniotic fluid, and without amniotic fluid she would never develop lungs,â Utz said. âI asked what her chances were, and they said there werenât any.âUtz and her husband had to make a decision: terminate the pregnancy or wait until she gave birth.
