Eighth Circuit Provides Date and Call-In Information for HB 126 Oral Arguments

The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals last month granted an en banc rehearing of its decision blocking provisions of Missouri's HB 126, also known as the Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act. This means that the original three-judge ruling will be reheard by the entire Eight Circuit Court of Appeals. The judges will reconsider whether HB 126's 8, 14, 18, and 20 week abortion bans, along with the law's ban on abortions based on race or Down syndrome diagnosis, are constitutional. The oral arguments in the case are set for Tuesday, September 21, 2021, at 10:00 A.M.  The public may listen to the live audio portion of these arguments by dialing the following number and entering the following access code:


Access Code: 4423562

We will continue to monitor this case and provide updates to our network as it progresses through the courts.
