Missouri House Passes Parental Notification of Abortion Bill

By a vote of 121-34, the Missouri House of Representatives has third read and passed HB 1370, sponsored by Rep. Rocky Miller (R-Lake Ozark).  The bill requires any parent consenting to an abortion for a minor to notify his or her estranged custodial spouse in writing of the abortion before giving consent.  The bill would not require notice be given if the estranged spouse was guilty of child abuse, or other crime against a child or the family, had their parental rights terminated, or had an order of protection entered against them.  The bill now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
