HB 1307 would increase the minimum waiting period before a woman can have an abortion from 24 hours to 72 hours.

The bill would require the Department of Health and Senior Services to create a video that contains all of the information that must be provided to a woman considering an abortion by the physician who is to perform or induce the abortion. The required information is set forth in Mo. Rev. Stat. § 188.027. The bill states that the video does not have to contain the name of the physician who will perform or induce the abortion.


This bill passed the House on March 11, 2014.

Companion bill to SB 519.
