Late Wednesday night the Missouri legislature voted to override a veto by Gov. Jay Nixon (D) of legislation that will force women seeking to terminate a pregnancy to wait 72 hours until they can receive abortion care.
There’s only one remaining abortion clinic in Missouri—a Planned Parenthood facility in St. Louis—and anti-choice lawmakers are hell-bent on closing it, introducing nearly 40 anti-choice bills over the past two years.
Missouri’s Democratic governor has until the 14th to veto the state’s version of the Blunt Amendment, and so far he’s been entirely too quiet.
The senate may not have been able to pass a bill allowing employers to decide what health insurance can or can’t cover, but the Missouri legislature may do it themselves.
