Missouri House passes new parental notification requirement for abortion
Current law in the state requires the written consent of one parent, but this legislation would require informing the second, as well.
Bill sponsor Rep. Rocky Miller, a Republican, argued for the bill by discussing the example of his then-teenage daughter, who opted not to have an abortion thanks to knowing she had her parents’ support.
Miller further noted that the bill does not apply to parents who have a history of drug abuse, have been convicted of child abuse, or have had protective orders taken out against them.

If the bill is enacted, it will strengthen parental involvement requirements in the state, but Missouri will still permit minors to petition a judge for a judicial bypass.
