Should abortion be legal?

Minutes after the decision, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt issued an opinion that would trigger parts of a state House bill that outlaws almost all abortions in the state, with no exceptions for rape or incest.

“With this attorney general opinion, my Office has effectively ended abortion in Missouri, becoming the first state in the country to do so following the court’s ruling,” Schmitt said.

The attorney general made the announcement on Twitter at 10:16 a.m.

“This is a monumental day for the sanctity of life,” Schmitt said.

In addition to the Show-Me State, twelve others have similar trigger laws — Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming — that would put a near-total ban on abortion once they go into effect.
