Missouri HB 2081

The bill specifies that a pregnant woman may use deadly force if she reasonably believes that deadly force is necessary to protect her unborn child against death, serious physical injury, or any forcible felony.

Beforehand, if a pregnant women defended herself and her unborn child, she could be criminally prosecuted. This legislation would correct that glaring deficiency.   Why hasn't Governor Nixon signed this legislation yet?   Perhaps it's time for the good people of Missouri to turn the heat up on Governor Nixon. 

The bill can be found here.
