Missouri became the first state to implement a law to sharply restrict abortion in effect following the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, according to state officials.

Attorney General Eric Schmitt, a candidate for the Republican Senate nomination, announced that he signed an opinion Friday morning activating the state’s trigger law shortly after the high court handed down its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson.

“Following the SCOTUS ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, Missouri has just become the first in the country to effectively end abortion with our AG opinion signed moments ago. This is a monumental day for the sanctity of life,” Mr. Schmitt tweeted.

The 2019 Missouri law prohibits abortion after eight weeks’ gestation except in the case of a medical emergency.

Missouri Gov. Mike Parson declared that “Missouri has become the first state in the nation to effectively end abortions.”
