Missouri becomes first state to ban abortions following overturn of Roe

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt issued an opinion on Friday that made his state the first to end abortion following the Supreme Court’s overturn of Roe v. Wade.

The state’s decision was issued less than an hour after the court’s verdict.

“Today, the overruling of Roe and Casey permits Missouri to renew its proud pro-life traditions and restore basic legal protection for the most fundamental of human rights — the right to life,” Schmitt said.

“Following the SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, Missouri has just become the first in the country to effectively end abortion with our AG opinion signed moments ago,” Schmitt’s office wrote on Twitter. “This is a monumental day for the sanctity of life.”

The new move is one in 13 states that have trigger laws that will further limit abortion within 30 days of the court’s verdict.

The news will help end many abortions in the nation, though legal challenges are likely to soon follow.
