FULL TITLE: Missouri lawmakers ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy as Mike Pence PRAISES Alabama's near-total ban for 'embracing life' and accuses Democrat-led states of backing 'extreme' laws
Missouris Republican-led House has passed legislation designed to survive court challenges, which would ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy.
If enacted, the ban would be among the most restrictive in the U.S. It includes exceptions for medical emergencies, but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.
Doctors would face five to 15 years in prison for violating the eight-week cutoff. Women who receive abortions would not be prosecuted.
Republican governor Mike Parson is expected to sign the bill.
Abortion-rights supporters in the Missouri House chamber chanted, 'When you lie, people die' before being ejected. Representatives voted 110-44 for the bill.
The Missouri legislation comes days after Alabamas governor signed a bill making performing an abortion a crime in nearly all cases.
GOP-dominated state legislatures have been emboldened by the possibility that a more conservative Supreme Court could overturn its landmark ruling legalizing abortions.
'Pro-life state lawmakers and activists saw the shift on the Court, 'Mallory Quigley, a spokesperson for the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, told DailyMail.com.'
Vice President Mike Pence said Thursday that Democrats in some states are enacting 'extreme' laws expanding the availability of abortions, at a time when Republicans elsewhere are drawing fire for trying to completely ban the procedure.
'Sadly, many states around the country are ... adopting extreme pro-abortion legislation,' Pence told reporters in Wisconsin. He singled out New York for what he said was an 'embrace' of late-term abortion.
The vice president is a former Indiana governor and congressman who won his elections on the strength of unwavering conservative credentials, including his strict evangelical Christian views.

Good for VP Pence!
As for this: “When you lie, people die’”
Yeah, an unborn child dies. Ever think of that, pro-aborters?
Mike Pence seems to be Donald Trump’s conscience.
Liberals hardest hit.
Film at 11.
At least until the push-back gets too hot.
Raging man-hating fangtooth feminazis are mad! (They’re always mad!)
They can’t have their precious abortion!
‘Splodie heads all over both coasts.
Yeah, an unborn child dies.
Great, but women need to be prosecuted for trying to get an abortion. They are trying to get someone to commit a crime for them that murders someone inconvenient to them.
“Raging man-hating fangtooth feminazis are mad! “
The irony is none of these filthy skags has a chance of ever needing an abortion.
Winning! More please.
Cecile Richards will probably leap to the aid of the “kill-a-kid” inclined and provide transportation to a more permissive state willing to profit from the genocide of the unborn.
No, they dont need to be prosecuted, not only because a lot of them are under pressure from boyfriends, friends and even their own mothers - whom I have seen marching their crying teenage girls into abortion facilities - but because any pregnancy ending before delivery is technically called an abortion.
This can mean what is popularly known as a miscarriage or, in other words, a spontaneous abortion. But you dont want women who have had that happen to them and gone through that horrible experience then be under suspicion of having gotten an abortion.
Keep it to the doctors...oh, and maybe extend it to the boyfriends and mothers who bring these girls in.
Maybe,,, Make Life Great Again?
Was at Costco today, and heard 2 women talking about Alabama’s vote. They were reciting the lefts talking’s point verbatim. It was sickening.
How can people not use their brains? They just follow marching orders.
The comments section needs a serious FReeping.
It seems there’s not much hope for the radical liberal brain.
Unless they have a Roman road experience of some sort.
Its like going after everyone else except the one who solicited everyone else to commit the crime for them.
If she doesnt come in for an illegal abortion, no one goes to jail. But if she gets her illegal abortion, everyone but her pays for her crime?
No. That is incredibly unjust.
And if someone is somehow forcing her to get the illegal abortion, and she also doesnt want it, then prosecute that person. If they both want it, prosecute them both.
No abortions! If you are brave enough, watch the video for the truth.
