Members of the Missouri House complete work on the biggest issue of the special legislative session, sending Governor Matt Blunt the anti-abortion bill he requested. The House has sent the Governor a bill that allows parents to sue anyone who helps their daughter cross state lines to avoid Missouri’s parental consent law. And it requires doctors who perform abortions to have privileges in nearby hospitals to handle any complications that might arise. Governor Blunt called for the special session after a similar bill bogged down in the final days of the regular session when some lawmakers attempted to add language to ban certain stem cell research. Blunt rejected such an expansion and made his call for the special session narrow enough to avoid the controversial stem cell debate.
