Administrative Hearing Commission to Hear St. Louis Planned Parenthood Case

stl arch

The licensing dispute between the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion clinic and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) will now move to the Administrative Hearing Commission. The AHC has set the licensing hearing for August 1st.  

This move comes after DHSS officially rejected the clinic's license to perform abortions last week, citing 30 deficient practices found at the facility. However, Planned Parenthood was granted a preliminary injunction by Judge Michael Stelzer of the 22nd Circuit Court, allowing it to continue performing abortions. As that injunction was set to expire on Friday (today), the AHC has now granted Planned Parenthood a stay of its license rejection until the August hearing. This means that the St. Louis clinic can continue providing abortions despite not having an active license.
