RICHMOND HEIGHTS (KMOV.com) – Democratic State Representative Stacey Newman has introduced a bill into the Missouri legislature which would prevent vasectomies from being performed on a man unless it is to save his life.

Newsman says she brought the bill forward to lawmakers because if the state is going to restrict access to birth control used by 98% of Missouri women, then it should be fair to legislate men’s access as well. 

The bill has yet to be formally read on the Missouri House floor.
