Planned Parenthood Keeps Columbia Clinic Open

AP) – A federal judge is leaving in place – at least for now – a preliminary injunction barring the state of Missouri from revoking Planned Parenthood’s license to perform abortions at a Columbia clinic.
After a hearing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Nanette Laughrey said she would weigh the matter and rule “as soon as possible,” the Columbia Daily Tribune ( reported.
Planned Parenthood is fighting to keep the license after University of Missouri Health Care canceled St. Louis physician Colleen McNicholas’ privileges that allowed her to provide medication-induced abortions at the clinic.
Attorneys for Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri argue that political pressure that led to the university’s actions also governed the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services’ decision to revoke the license.
