In April, a federal judge struck down many of Missouri's restrictive regulations on abortion clinics. And last week, Gov. Eric Greitens called lawmakers back for an "extraordinary session" to pass a bill in response to all of that. But these two lawmakers think the session, and the reasons for it, aren't so extraordinary. We consider the legislation approved by the Senate and what it would mean for supporters and opponents of abortion rights if it passes the House this week.
