State Trial Court Upholds Missouri Law Limiting Abortions

A new Missouri law that limits abortions is constitutional,  a county judge ruled Thursday. Circuit Judge Charles Atwell also ordered an injunction that prohibits enforcement of the law pending a ruling by the Missouri Supreme Court. The law would expose people to civil lawsuits if they “intentionally cause, aid or assist” girls under 18 to get an abortion without parental consent or without a court order waiving consent. Offenders also could be charged criminally with a misdemeanor for violating a separate Missouri consent law. Source. Joe Lambe, The Kansas City Star, kansascity.com.
