Missouri Senate passes bill to ban abortions at 8 weeks

Source: LA Times

Missouri's Republican-led Senate passed a bill to ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy.
Senators approved the legislation 24-10 early Thursday with just hours left before lawmakers' Friday deadline to pass bills. It needs at least another vote of approval in the GOP-led House before it can go to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who supports it.

The Missouri proposal includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest. Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff. Women who receive abortions at eight weeks or later into a pregnancy wouldn't be prosecuted.

Senate Democrats launched into an attack on the bill before Republican supporters had a chance to bring it up for debate on the Senate floor. Lawmakers had faced a Friday deadline to pass legislation.

"So much of this bill is just shaming women into some kind of complacency that says we are vessels of pregnancy rather than understanding that women's lives all hold different stories," St. Louis-area Democratic Sen. Jill Schupp told colleagues. "We cannot paint with a broad brush and interfere by putting a law forward that tells them what they can and cannot do."

1. and it begins...

the regressive states starting their full court press to take away women's rights.

I think they are betting all on the idea the the supreme court is in their favor.

4. This is outrageous. There's often not time to schedule an abortion....

after you discover you're pregnant. Sometimes there's time in the middle while the "father" decides whether to stick around or dump you. Or for your parents or his parents to weigh in. Then you have to see a dr., make an appt for an abortion, sometimes out of town.

Outrageous.

5. The solution to this confusion is simple.

A few Southern States are moving America back to the Dark Ages.

Accidental, unwanted pregnancies with no choice. In Southern States that lack the support services in terms of financial support, educational and employment opportunities for such offspring to ensure they become balanced, Patriotic citizens of the county.
Recipe for disaster!

It's Dark Ages, Medieval stuff developing right before our eyes.

Time for another Medieval solution, the Chastity Belt?

I have a great design in mind. Guaranteed rape, alcohol and incest proof. Comes with it's own iPhone and Android app.
It will put an end to unwanted pregnancies, and need for abortions. Lawmakers should be happy!
See me for details.
