ST. LOUIS(KMOV)- There is a shocking proposal from a St. Louis lawmaker who wants to rename the iconic St. Louis Zoo in an effort to get more tax money. 

Senator Bob Onder of Lake St. Louis has filed an amendment to rename the zoo  “The Midwest Abortion Sanctuary City Zoological Park”.

Senator Onder says it’s in response to the city recently banning discrimination against women who have had an abortion.

Missouri Governor Eric Greitens called St. Louis an ” abortion sanctuary city”.

The amendment would be added to Senator Gina Walsh’s existing proposal that seeks to boost tax revenue for the zoo.
