Most abortions are already illegal in Missouri and the state’s Medicaid program does not reimburse for abortions that are allowed. The bill has received harsh criticism from Democrats, including Florissant Democrat Angela Mosely, who argued that Planned Parenthood cannot provide abortion services in Missouri.
