Missouri legislators met Wednesday on the senate floor to discuss the abortion bill at the Missouri State Capital building in Jefferson City. The bill, also known as House Bill 126, would outlaw abortions past eight weeks from conception in the state of Missouri. Supporters of the anti-abortion group Missouri Right For Life gathered at the capital on Wednesday evening to show their support.

Multiple states around the country have passed similar bills, making it illegal to have an abortion early in a pregnancy. These controversial bills have sparked conversation among lawmakers and around the state. Similar legislation is being moved in Louisiana. If the bill passes, Missouri's restrictions will follow similar bans and limitations placed on the procedure in states like Ohio, Alabama and others.

Some revisions were made to the bill before it ultimately passed with a 24-10 vote at around 4 a.m. on Thursday. 

The legislative session ends on Friday at 6 p.m.
