Federal Judge Halts Missouri's Abortion Expansion, Leaving Three Clinics in Limbo


Federal Judge Halts Missouri's Abortion Expansion, Leaving Three Clinics in Limbo

For the first time in years, the Planned Parenthood location in the Central West End is no longer the sole abortion-providing clinic in Missouri. But though a Kansas City clinic is now offering abortion services (medical only), a federal appeals court has effectively blocked three other Planned Parenthood locations from doing the same.On Friday, in a one-sentence ruling, the full Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay on the groundbreaking ruling issued by U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs in April 2017. Based on a landmark Supreme Court case in Texas, Sachs's ruling had blocked the "undue burdens" Missouri inflicts on clinics.
