Mike Parson on Abortion

 

 


Ban abortion after the eighth week of pregnancy

Parson's most attention-grabbing action so far has been to sign into law a bill that would ban abortion after the eighth week of pregnancy, which is far earlier than the standard of viability established by the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade ruling. The law, which was blocked from taking effect because of a court challenge, includes exceptions for medical emergencies such as a risk of death or permanent physical injuries to "a major bodily function of the pregnant woman."

Enforces law which shuts down only abortion clinic in state

Missouri will not renew Planned Parenthood's license to perform abortions unless the clinic fully complies with the state's requests, said Parson during a press conference. The clinic is the last one performing abortions in the state. The governor claimed, "Planned Parenthood has been actively and knowingly violating state law on numerous occasions." Parson said. "They should not receive any exceptions because they are one clinic."

Signs bill criminalizing abortion after eight weeks

Parson signed a bill that criminalizes abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy. Any person who performs an abortion after eight weeks--often before many women are aware they are pregnant--could be charged with a felony punishable by five to 15 years in prison. The legislation does not have exceptions for victims of rape or incest. It does have a carve-out for cases of medical emergencies. Parson has said he would like to make Missouri "the most Pro-Life state in the country,"

Solidly pro-life; supports protecting rights of the unborn

Mike has always been supportive of protecting the rights of the unborn, and he has consistently voted for legislation that has made our state among the most pro-life in the nation, including the measure extending the waiting period for an abortion from 24 hours to 72 hours.
