Missouri’s last remaining abortion clinic will stay open

Fight to keep Missouri’s last abortion clinic

A St. Louis circuit judge just granted Planned Parenthood a restraining order against the state, allowing the abortion clinic to continue operating even after state health officials had refused to renew the clinic’s license.

Had the license lapsed, the clinic would have been forced to stop providing the procedure, effectively ending legal abortion in the state. Missouri would have become the first state to not have a legal abortion clinic since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
