Abortion Rights Supporters Protest New Missouri Abortion Law

Protesters gathered at noon Tuesday in downtown Columbia and vowed action on the abortion law passed last week by the Missouri legislature.

House Bill 126 outlaws all abortions at eight weeks except in cases of medical emergencies, according to previous Missourian reporting. The bill has not yet been signed by Gov. Mike Parson, but he has said that he will sign the bill.

Tuesday’s demonstration in front of city hall was organized by Planned Parenthood Advocates of Mizzou and CoMo for Progress. Lyra Noce, chair of the Boone County Democrats, urged approximately 50 people in the crowd to make their disapproval known at the ballot box.
