MISSOURI GOVERNOR PARSON SIGNS 8-WEEK ABORTION BAN INTO LAW!!!
Today marks a historic moment for Missouri and what could be the beginning of the end for a controversial medical procedure in Missouri and across the nation.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson on Friday signed a bill that bans abortions on or beyond the eighth weeks of pregnancy without exceptions for cases of rape or incest, making it among the most restrictive abortion policies in the nation.
Under the law that comes into force Aug. 28, doctors who violate the eight-week cutoff could face five to 15 years in prison. A legal challenge is expected, although it's unclear when that might occur.
