BREAKING: Abortion Is Now Officially Illegal in Missouri, Except to Save the Mother's Life

This morning the US Supreme Court ruled that there was no Constitutional right to abortion and returned the regulation of that horrendous procedure to the states (see BREAKING: SCOTUS Overturns Roe (and Casey) in 6-3 Decision). Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt wasted no time.


Missouri is one of 13 states with so-called “trigger laws” (Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming) that severely restrict or ban abortion if Roe is repealed. In Missouri, that is achieved under its 2019 law by the governor or attorney general certifying that Roe is no longer the law of the land.

Effective today, abortion is only allowed in Missouri to save the mother’s life. Mothers and children are safer in Missouri. We can hope that the other 12 states follow through on their promise and eradicate this pseudo-medical monstrosity.
