Current Bill Summary

SJR 87 - This constitutional amendment, if approved by the voters, prohibits the performance or inducement of an abortion upon a woman, except in cases of medical emergency. A person who violates this provision shall be guilty of a Class B felony and subject to suspension or revocation of his or her professional license. A woman upon whom an abortion is performed or induced in violation of this amendment shall not be prosecuted for a conspiracy to violate the provisions of this amendment. The General Assembly shall not add any further exceptions to the prohibition on abortions unless such exceptions are put to a vote of the people in accordance with the Missouri Constitution.

The General Assembly may provide for an income tax credit for contributions made to agencies that provide support to pregnant and new mothers, born and unborn children, and their families, including nonprofit pregnancy resource centers, provided that any law authorizing such contributions shall not allow for tax credits to be authorized by an entity that performs, induces, or refers for abortions or holds itself out as performing, inducing, or referring for abortions.
