  • The Missouri House has passed a bill to extend the abortion waiting period to 72 hours. It passed 111-39. Pro-aborts are lamely doing a ceremonial filibuster outside the Capitol:

    The House voted 111-39 in favor of the measure Wednesday, sending it to [Gov. Jay] Nixon, who has previously allowed other abortion restrictions to become law without his signature. That included a measure last year that requires doctors to be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medical abortions.

    Nixon said Tuesday that he would review the extended waiting period and act in a manner consistent with his other actions on abortion legislation.
