Will Missouri Legislature’s Missed Opportunity Impact Outcome Of Potential Abortion Rights Measure?

(MISSOURINET) – Another Missouri legislative session has come and gone – with some Republican priorities passing and others dying. House Speaker Dean Plocher (plocker) blames the Missouri Senate for failing to pass an effort to make it more difficult to change the state constitution – and therefore possibly paving the way for abortion to be legal again in Missouri.

Senate President Caleb Rowden, a fellow Republican from Columbia, has a different view…

After a 2022 U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Missouri immediately banned most abortions in the state, including cases of rape and incest.
