This is one of the most insane things I have ever heard of in American politics. No matter how many crazy, stupid, immoral or unconstitutional acts our politicians commit they never fail to continue to outdue themselves. This story is all of the above. A politician in Missouri wants to ban college students from researching the effect of abortion laws on women. He must be a Republican because Republicans hate education, knowledge, science and freedom of belief (unless those beliefs are controlled by them). How this could be legal, let alone constitutional, is beyond me, but hopefully this won't come to pass. How insecure about your beliefs do you have to be to try to outlaw and discussion or research about your political issues? First they outlaw studying gun crime, now abortion. Why don't they just try to outlaw school alltogether?

You don't know if is a Republican, but it must be.

Students have to fight for their right to research.
Students can research anything they want. Research usually is about assignments, resulting in papers, review, debate, in class.
Because a state senator is trying to make it law so that students CAN NOT research the things they want.
