Busy Philipps' #YouKnowMe Inspires People To Share Their Abortion Stories

Lawmakers had faced a Friday deadline to pass legislation.

In the wake of the bill being passed, Amanda Reyes, president of the group had received many donations - some as big as $15,000.

The Missouri Senate vote comes less than 24 hours after Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey signed into law what is considered the most restrictive abortion law in the U.S. It bans almost all abortions, at any stage of pregnancy.

A previous version of the bill also would have prohibited abortions after heartbeat activity could be detected - which is about six weeks into a pregnancy.

Should the Missouri measure win final passage in the House it would go into effect on August 28, with or without the governor's signature.

The bill, known as the Human Life Protection Act prohibits abortion or attempted abortion in the state, except "in cases where abortion is necessary in order to prevent a serious health risk to the unborn child's mother". The bills are part of a pro-life movement to challenge Roe v. Wade and two subsequent Supreme Court rulings. Supreme Court precedent is rarely overturned, so it would be remarkable if the court even made a decision to hear a case that could challenge Roe.

Lawmakers passed the bill 110-44.

Yes, merely banning abortion isn't enough for some on the rabid right - they want to criminalize it altogether.

Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cut-off. Like the Alabama bill that passed hours before, Missouri's HB 126 does not allow for abortion in cases of rape or incest.

Missouri is among several states where abortion opponents are working with renewed enthusiasm following US President Donald Trump's appointment of more conservative high court justices.

However, Missouri governor Mike Parson has publicly voiced his support of the measure.

In other words, people capable of becoming pregnant would not legally be able to seek an abortion in the state if they had fallen pregnant through rape or incest.

They chanted "Vote no, now" as the Republican-led House was passing the legislation, then switched to chants of "shame, shame, shame".

"This bill is about challenging Roe v. Wade and protecting the lives of the unborn", said State Rep. Terri Collins (R-Decatur), who sponsored the bill.

Missouri's bill also includes an outright ban on abortions except in cases of medical emergencies.

It also requires a parent or guardian giving written consent for a minor to get an abortion to first notify the other parent, except if the other parent has been convicted of a violent or sexual crime, is subject to a protection order or is "habitually in an intoxicated or drugged condition". And the state's already planning to become a safe destination for out-of-state women seeking an abortion in a post-Roe world.

More than 250 bills restricting abortions have been filed in 41 states this year.

In a statement from the Missouri Senate Republicans, Sens.

This means that women in the state will still have access to the procedure even if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

"Thanks to the leaders in the House and Senate, we have the opportunity to be one of the strongest pro-life states in the country", Parson said on Wednesday. "Most of them were date rapes or consensual rapes, which were all bad, but I sat in court - sat in court - when juries would struggle with those types of situations where it was a 'he-said, she-said, ' and they would find the person not guilty". Republicans introduced the bill following national outrage over Democratic Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam's comments defending infanticide.
