JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Without his signature, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has allowed legislation that will require doctors to be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medication abortions.

Nixon announced Friday he would not sign the bill that effectively prohibits the use of telemedicine to provide medication abortions in Missouri. Without the signature, the bill becomes law.

The Guttmacher Institute that supports abortion rights said 10 states require a prescribing doctor be present. Enforcement of the requirement has been temporarily blocked in North Dakota and Wisconsin because of litigation.

Planned Parenthood for the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri says it has not used telemedicine for medication abortions. But that option has been available since 2008 in Iowa.

The governor is promoting a 100 Missouri Miles Challenge to encourage physical activity. He'll officially kick off the challenge in St. Louis and Springfield this weekend. The event coincides with National Trails Day on Saturday.

Missouri has almost 1,000 miles of trails within the state park system and more than 500 miles of trails federally designated as National Recreation Trails.

Trout season opens Friday in MO

 

The opening of Missouri's catch-and-keep trout season is this Friday at Bennett Spring State Park, Montauk, Roaring River State Park and Meramec Spring. The conservation department operates hatcheries at all four trout parks.

The long-range weather forecast for Friday points to highs in the 40s and a small chance of rain. But the four state parks will be stocked with more than 25,000 trout. About 8,600 anglers are expected to turn out. Governor Jay Nixon will be at Montauk Hatchery near Licking to fire the opening pistol.
