Pro-Choice Activists Swarm Missouri State Capitol to Protest Abortion Ban
Pro-choice activists demonstrated inside the Missouri State Capitol in Jefferson City on May 18 as the Republican-led House voted to ban abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy.
According to the St.
Louis Post-Dispatch, lawmakers in Missouri approved a bill that would ban most abortions in the state in a final 110-44 vote.
The proposal will now move forward to Republic Governor Mike Parson who is expected to sign the bill into law.
This footage, shared by Planned Parenthood, shows protesters and activists chanting “shame” and “vote no now,” and marching through the building before the vote passed.
