hb 1613

3

The Missouri legislature is pushing through yet another extreme, dangerous, completely non-medical bill to cut off women’s access to safe and legal abortion—and shame and hurt women who seek it out. Let’s be clear: This is about politics, not about women’s health.

HB 1613 is an extreme bill that forces women to endure a mandatory ultrasound and receive inaccurate medical information, as well as triples the state’s mandatory waiting period, senselessly forcing abortions later in pregnancy and putting women’s health at risk. It’s political intusion at its worst—and in the courts, bills like this one are a losing game.
