SHOW-ME PLANNED PARENTHOOD ABORTION CLINIC WINNING IN MISSOURI!?!!
The pro-life vs. pro-choice fight continues after a judge prolongs the decision -- Ironically, a privilege that many women in Missouri are also fighting to attain.
Another coinkydink: There's often fear of "back alley" abortions if women aren't allowed to access to the procedure in a "safe & legal" environment yet this debate is focused on a clinic that has, in fact, endured several complaints over protections for its patients and their well-bring. Moreover, critics site instances of failed surgical abortions in which patients remained pregnant, as well as a failure to obtain a patient's "informed consent" which seems exceptionally ghastly and not anything worth advocating for as healthcare "freedom" for women.
Here's the quick rundown of today's ruling that only promises more fighting ahead:
The decision prevents Missouri, at least for a few days, from becoming the first state without an abortion clinic since the Supreme Court legalized abortion nationwide in 1973. Had the judge not intervened, the clinic, a Planned Parenthood facility in St. Louis, would have been forced to stop providing abortions by midnight if the state hadn't renewed its license.
Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and state health officials contended that the clinic had numerous violations that must be addressed before its license could be renewed. Planned Parenthood said the state was unlawfully conditioning its decision on a routine license renewal application on a vague and politically motivated investigation.
