Missouri House Passes Bill Requiring Parental Notification

The Missouri House this week third read and passed HB 1370, a bill that requires both custodial parents be given notice in the event a minor seeks an abortion. The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Rocky Miller (R-Lake Ozark), requires either the minor herself or the parent giving consent for the minor to obtain an abortion to notify the other custodial parent in writing about the abortion before giving consent. The bill now moves to the Senate for further consideration.
