HOUSTON (FOX 26) - On Friday, Missouri's House passed a strict new bill that would keep a woman from ending a pregnancy after eight weeks or after a heartbeat is detected.
There are exceptions included in the bill like medical emergencies when the mother's life is at risk, but not for when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest. Doctors could be jailed up to 15 years if they violate the law. Missouri's governor is expected to sign the bill.
Two days ago, Alabama's governor signed the nation's stricted abortion law that threatens life in jail for doctors who perform the procedure, even if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.
