More Now Known about Subpoenaed Abortionists
By Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue
St. Louis, MO – A hearing for a preliminary injunction that would bar the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services enforcing licensing laws and regulations regarding Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood in St. Louis has been completed and taken under advisement by Judge Michael Stelzer.
RHS Planned Parenthood is the last remaining abortion facility in Missouri. If no preliminary injunction is issued, it is believed that its facility license will expire and Missouri will become the first abortion-free state since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
If Stelzer issues a preliminary, RHS Planned Parenthood would be allowed to continue conducting surgical abortions even though it does not currently meet licensing laws and regulations.
“The Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis is among the worst in the nation with at least 74 medical emergencies documented there that have required ambulance transport to the hospital,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “If it is allowed to continue abortions without meeting the requirements set by law, there are grave concerns that more women will be seriously injured or even killed due to the substandard practices at this abortion facility.”
