FILE - In this Sept. 29, 2015 file photo, people participate in a rally to show support for Planned Parenthood, organized by MoveOn and called "Pink Out Kansas City," as an anti-abortion demonstrator stands amongst them, at the Country Club Plaza, in Kansas City, Mo. Planned Parenthood and its allies filed lawsuits Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2016, in North Carolina, Missouri and Alaska challenging laws that they view as unconstitutional restrictions on abortion. The restrictions being challenged in Missouri are similar to those that the Supreme Court recently struck down in Texas - they require abortion clinics to meet standards for surgical centers and mandate that their doctors have admitting privileges in nearby hospitals. (John Sleezer /The Kansas City Star via AP, File)');}JEFFERSON CITY â¢Â Planned Parenthood is asking a federal district judge to block two Missouri abortion laws pending a lawsuit the organization filed in November.
