Bill would alert prosecutors to teen abortions

The Missouri House has passed a bill that would require abortion providers to tell prosecutors whenever a teenage girl seeks an abortion. Legislators say it's another way to alert law enforcement about possible rapes, the AP reports. There would also be a new crime for coercing a woman to have an abortion. It's not clear how the bill will do in the state Senate.
