Missouri Right to Life applauds the Missouri House for voting to expand the informed consent laws on abortion. HB 1831, sponsored by Rep. Bob Onder, requires that a mother be offered an ultrasound, be informed about her child’s ability to feel pain and be protected from coercion.
It’s difficult to understand how anyone could oppose legislation that allows a pregnant woman to see her baby’s heartbeat or to learn about her unborn child’s development. And certainly no one supports the outrage of coerced abortions.
Missouri citizens would be well served if the Missouri Senate, who will now take up this bill, supports informed choices and protection for women by passing this legislation.
