Missouri House Votes to Regulate Abortion Clinics

The Missouri state House passed a bill Monday that would tighten regulations for abortion clinics, The Associated Press reported.

The legislation, which passed 101-48, would require clinics that perform late-term abortions and those that do more than five first-trimester abortions a month to become ambulatory surgical centers. That would subject the clinics to increased regulation from the Department of Health and Senior Services.

Missouri Right to Life said the intent is to make sure the clinics are safe.
