Missouri's Last Abortion Clinic Denied Liscense

On Friday, Missouri health officials refused to renew the license of the state’s only abortion clinic. The facility will remain open for now as a judge left in place an injunction blocking its closure. Judge Michael Stelzer said it might be days before the court would come to a decision on whether the state could shut its only abortion clinic. The clinic is operated by women’s healthcare and abortion provider Planned Parenthood. “I think you guys are expecting an order soon. I don’t know that order is going to be today,” Stelzer. The hearing lasted less than five minutes. If the clinic were to close, Missouri would become the only U.S. state without a legal abortion clinic. The state is one of 12 to pass laws restricting abortion access this year.
