Missouri lawmakers consider abortion legislation as session closes

With three weeks left in Missouri's legislative session, some lawmakers continue to push measures that address the handling of remains of aborted babies and a plan to strip funding from Planned Parenthood.

The bills are the culmination of a legislative investigation into how abortions are conducted in Missouri. The investigation was prompted by a series of undercover videos, released last year by the Center for Medical Progress, that appeared to show Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts.
