Missouri Senate to consider pro-life legislation after break

The Missouri Senate is expected to reconvene sometime after the Fourth of July holiday to consider pro-life legislation.

In a special session called by Gov. Eric Greitens, the Senate passed SB 5, which would amend Missouri law to pre-empt local governments from enacting laws that adversely affect legal rights of individuals based on their view of abortion, require abortion clinics to be inspected annually and gives the Missouri attorney general greater authority to enforce Missouri's abortion laws.
