Only the greatest of ideas come from Missouri Republicans:

While debating legislation that bans gender-affirming care for minors, the bill’s sponsor Missouri state Sen. Mike Moon (R-Ash Grove) expressed his support for children as young as 12 years old getting married to each other.

When pressed by state Rep. Peter Meredith (D-St. Louis) about a different bill Moon voted against in the past, which would make it illegal for adults to marry children, Moon doubled down on his support for underage marriage.

“Do you know any kids who have been married at age 12? I do. And guess what? They’re still married,” Moon responded.

Moon’s support for child marriage stretches back to 2018, when he referenced the same 12-year-old couple he knew when he voted against a bill that raised the marriage age.

Have Republicans filed legislation to overturn statutory rape laws yet? There’s something Trump could get behind!
