Numerous states, including Missouri, had “trigger laws” that were poised to take effect if the Supreme Court issued such a verdict.

On Friday, as the Supreme Court released its landmark decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, pro-life legislators in Mississippi concluded their decades-long fight to ban abortion in the state.

Missouri was the first state after Roe v. Wade to effectively ban abortion.

The Kansas City Star reports that the trigger prohibition was passed by lawmakers in 2019. As soon as either Governor Mike Parsons or Attorney General Eric Schmitt issued an official pronouncement that Roe had been reversed, the statute was scheduled to go into effect.

Schmitt issued a similar statement within minutes after the Supreme Court’s ruling.

Schmitt noted in a news release, “Today, following the United States Supreme Court’s ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade, with the issuance of an attorney general opinion, my Office has yet again reinforced Missouri’s dedication to protecting the sanctity of life, both born and unborn.”

“With this attorney general opinion, my Office has effectively ended abortion in Missouri, becoming the first state in the country to do so following the Court’s ruling.”

“My Office has been fighting to uphold the sanctity of life since I became attorney general, culminating in today’s momentous court ruling and attorney general opinion. I will continue the fight to protect all life, born and unborn.”

Missouri has long been a pro-life state.

The state passed a law banning abortion back in 1825 that lasted until the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling legalized abortion nationwide.

Twelve other states have trigger laws set to go into effect now that Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey have been overturned.

Those states are Arkansas, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennesse, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion think tank, as many as 26 states are “certain or likely” to immediately implement bans on abortion.
