JEFFERSON CITY, MO (Missourinet) An abortion bill has cleared a hurdle. Alisa Nelson reports.

The Missouri House Committee on Government Oversight has voted in favor of legislation that would criminalize the importing, distributing or administering of abortion-inducing drugs. Committee chair, state Representative Jered Taylor of Nixa, explains two key provisions were removed from the bill.

A fetus cannot survive an ectopic pregnancy and it can put the mother’s life in danger. The bill heads to another House committee for consideration.
