There has been a lot of hype over the past month about the fate of Missouri’s last abortion clinic. On June 1st, Missouri’s Department of Health and Senior Services refused to renew the Planned Parenthood of St. Louis’s license after finding serious health concerns back in March. Planned Parenthood was quick to decry the decision as an attempt by the state government to enforce their anti-abortion agenda after the Governor signed a bill outlawing abortion after 8 weeks. Abortion rights advocates say that this is yet another attempt for “women’s reproductive rights” to be reduced.
