Missouri Judge agrees to Planned Parenthood’s request for a temporary restraining order
Friday afternoon Missouri Judge Michael Stelzer agreed with Planned Parenthood and issues a temporary restraining order preventing the license of the state’s lone remaining abortion clinic from expiring. His decision followed a day after hearing oral arguments Thursday afternoon.
“Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region sued the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services on Tuesday, alleging the state agency was illegally refusing to renew the St. Louis abortion clinic’s yearly license until the department could complete an investigation into an unspecified patient complaint,” The St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Joel Currier reported.
