Missouri ‘Right to Life of the Unborn Child Act’ (SB 345)
This law was last updated on Feb 26, 2019
SB 345 would trigger a statewide abortion ban if the U.S. Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade.
The bill would make it a felony to perform or induce an abortion upon a pregnant person, except in cases of medical emergencies.
Any person who knowingly performs or induces an abortion in violation of this act would be guilty of a class B felony, and may lose their professional license.
The bill clarifies that a pregnant person who receives an abortion would not be subject to prosecution.
Under this bill, the state General Assembly declares its intention that the state and its political subdivisions shall be a “sanctuary of life” to protect “pregnant women and their unborn children.”
Nearly identical to HB 1017.
Similar to HB 789.
