Missouri lawmakers override Governor's veto on '72-hour' abortion law

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 09/11/2014 - 22:58
(Reuters) - Missouri lawmakers on Wednesday passed a law requiring women to wait three days for an abortion, even in cases of rape or incest, according to the legislature's websites - overriding an earlier veto from Governor Jay Nixon. In July, Democratic Governor Nixon vetoed the bill to extend the minimum waiting period before a woman could have an abortion after an initial visit to a doctor to 72 hours from 24 hours. Nixon said the bill showed a "callous disregard for women who find themselves in horrific circumstances." The state's Republican-controlled Senate and House of Representatives on Wednesday overrode that veto with strong majorities, according to both chambers' websites.
