A Missouri state senator is proposing legislation that would require  women to wait even longer for an abortion in the state. Missouri currently has a 24-hour informed consent law. 
Now Republican David Sater of Cassville says extending that period to 72-hours would provide additional time for reflection that he hopes will reduce the number of abortions.  The legislation has been proposed for the 2014 legislative session starting January 8th.  Opponents contend a longer waiting period would not decrease the number of abortions, but simply cause them to happen later in pregnancy, which can increase risk.  Only South Dakota and Utah already impose a 72-hour waiting period.
