Federal Appeals Court Blocks Missouri's Latest Abortion Ban
Women in the state will still be able to go to the only remaining clinic offering abortion services in Missouri.
A three-judge panel with the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a federal judge’s decision not to enforce a 2019 law which banned most abortions at eight weeks and in cases where the fetus has Down syndrome. HB 126 is the latest bill from the Republican-led legislature in a continuing effort to undermine Roe vs. Wade. Dr. Colleen McNicholas describes the bill as "a clear challenge to established precedent."
