(Worthy News) - The last abortion clinic in Missouri could close because its license has yet to be renewed by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS), which is concerned about “deficiencies” at the facility and “troubling instances and deviations from the standard care,” which has resulted in “serious patient harm,” said the department.
The clinic, the Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Mo., is currently operating under a judge's order, an injunction issued on June 10. However, officials from the government and the clinic are meeting this week at an Administrative Hearing Commission (AHA) to hear testimony and reach a conclusion about the facility’s license.
In mid-March, the Planned Parenthood facility was inspected by state regulators who discovered problems and informed Planned Parenthood that they would need to interview the abortion-doctors who worked there. [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
