The Latest: ACLU petition aims to stop Missouri abortion law

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Latest on the possible closure of Missouri's only abortion clinic (all times local): 12:25 p.m. The ACLU of Missouri is seeking a statewide vote on a new law that will ban most abortions starting at eight weeks of pregnancy. The ACLU said Tuesday that it has submitted a referendum petition to the secretary of state's office as a first step toward blocking and potentially repealing the law that Republican Gov. Mike Parson signed last week.
