Missouri Abortion Law Post-Dobbs

In 2019 the Missouri legislature passed HB 126, a complete ban on abortion except in a medical emergency to take effect upon notice from the state attorney general, governor, or General Assembly that Roe v. Wade is overruled in whole or in part. A violation of HB 126 is a class B felony punishable by 5-15 years in prison. See Mo. Rev. Stat. 188.017. The attorney general and governor have provided the notice needed to trigger HB 126.
