Mo. Rep. Pushes Bill Requiring Father’s Signature for Abortion, Except in Cases of ‘Legitimate Rape’
A GOP lawmaker in Missouri introduced a bill that requires pregnant women to receive written consent from the father of the child before an abortion can be performed – or in exceptional cases of “legitimate rape.”
For nearly 20 years, drug felons have been barred from getting food stamps. Now, a bi-partisan bill in the Missouri legislature would return those benefits.
The bill is the latest move in an ongoing controversy over the Revenue Department’s controversial scanning of concealed carry documents.
It would expand who can buy and carry weapons, while also declaring federal gun control proposals unenforceable within the state’s borders.
One measure would put guns in the hands of teachers; the other would close gun show loopholes.
