SAINT LOUIS, Mo. — The only remaining clinic that does abortions in Missouri will remain open, at least for now.
A judge granted a preliminary injunction to Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Missouri on June 10.
The injunction stops the state of Missouri from closing the abortion clinic.
Planned Parenthood’s attorneys accused the governor and health department of weaponize laws to shut down the facility.
David Eisenberg, Medical Director for Planned Parenthood, is concerned for the future.”This ruling brings a bit of peace for my patients and the staff here but the uncertainty in the near future continues to loom large every day for us. Every stage of this fight has brought patients nothing but unease about their healthcare.”
The Missouri Department of Health and senior services must decide on Planned Parenthood’s license renewal no later than next Friday.
