The most restrictive abortion laws in generations are currently spreading across America's red states, setting up what could be a precedent-smashing Supreme Court challenge to the abortion status quo.
Driving the news: On Friday, the Missouri House passed a bill to ban abortions at 8 weeks of pregnancy with a 110-44 vote. The bill, which does not include exceptions for rape and incest, will head to the desk of Republican Gov. Mike Parson, who is expected to sign it into law. On Wednesday, Alabama's governor signed the strictest abortion law in the country, with no exceptions for cases of rape or incest. In what is anticipated to result in legal challenges, women will not be criminally liable for having an abortion in the state, but providers would face felony charges.
