Is Partial Birth Abortion illegal in Missouri?
And before you people yell at me and tell me to google it, fyi, I have and all ive found is old stuff from 2004 and past years nothing from even at least 2010 about any laws being formed against it. I need to know for this essay thats due tomarrow and could you give me your source please?

Yes. The Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003 was a federal ban that applies to all states, outlawing the procedure.
As it stands now, there are very limited situations in which it can be performed (which were upheld in the Supreme Court ruling Gonzales v. Carhart, 2007); I believe they are solely to preserve the life/health of the mother.
Hope that helps!
