Missouri legislators on Thursday enacted one of the toughest anti-abortion laws in the nation--one that never uses the word "abortion." Instead, the law talks of "infanticide" as it threatens doctors--and, for the first time, women--with sentences of up to life in prison for causing the death of any "intact child" who is "partially born or born." Anti-abortion legislators, who enacted the law by overriding Gov.

Abortion providers will face new regulations for their clinics and new restrictions on teaching sex education classes under a bill Gov. Matt Blunt signed into law in Jefferson City.

Planned Parenthood has said the law could force it to spend as much as $2 million to remodel one of its clinics and halt medical abortions at another site.

A first-trimester surgical abortion takes about two minutes. After, patients at the Planned Parenthood clinic here walk down a dimly lighted hall to a small, spare recovery room, where they rest in recliners, a box of tissues by each chair. Most are cleared to go home after 15 minutes. Thousands of women have safely ended pregnancies at this clinic since it opened in 1987. Conservative lawmakers in Missouri say abortion patients deserve better.
