Abortion Information

Sperm + egg = person, under proposal to change Missouri Constitution


Sperm + egg = person, under proposal to change Missouri Constitution
Kansas City Star

The personhood bill is only one in a series of bills that would restrict abortion in Missouri. The Senate is considering legislation that would mandate that women get a referral from a doctor before being allowed to seek an abortion in another state. The only clinic in the Kansas City area that performs abortions is a Planned Parenthood facility in Overland Park. Another bill would place new restrictions on donation of fetal tissue, and yet another would make it illegal for someone to transport a minor across state lines to get an abortion. In addition to Moonâs personhood bill, the House Children and Families Committee also debated legislation that would require both parents to be notified when a minor is seeking an abortion. Current law requires that only one parent be notified.
