This week, three pro-life bills were passed by the House Committee on Children and Families. By a vote of 9 - 4, the committee passed HB 680, sponsored by Rep. Mary Elizabeth Coleman (R-Arnold), and HB  339, sponsored by Rep. Adam Schnelting (R-St. Charles). These are identical bills that prohibit abortions after 20 weeks, the time at which an unborn child can feel pain.  

The committee also passed HB 126, sponsored by Rep. Nick Schroer (R-O'Fallon), by a vote of 9 - 4. HB 126 would prohibit abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which can be as early as six weeks depending on the method used.  

These three bills, along with HB 127, were also passed out of the House Rules - Administrative Oversight committee. HB 127, sponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller (R-Lake Ozark), would require a consenting parent of a minor seeking an abortion to inform the other parent in writing. These bills now move to the House for full debate.
