State senators outline Planned Parenthood investigation results

Members of the Missouri Senate’s Sanctity of Life Committee held a news conference Tuesday addressing the results ofthe committee’s months-long investigationof the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics.

Eight senators signed a report that criticized the organizations for poor record keeping, noncompliance with state law in its disposal of fetal remains and an indifference to women’s health.

Senators who singed the report include Senators Kehoe, Richard, Schaefer, Riddle, Kraus, Schmitt, Onder and Sater.

This comes one week after a landmark decision by the U.S. Supreme Courtcaused a Texas abortion access law to be thrown out.

It would have required doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals and clinics, and to follow the strict standards of an ambulatory surgical center.

With the precedent-setting decision on the books, Missouri Planned Parenthood affiliates are planning their next step.

ABC 17 News asked a representative from the newly named Planned Parenthood Great Plains if there were plans in the works to file a test case for Missouri in the wake of the SCOTUS decision.

The representative had no update at this time, but said the organization expects more information later in the week.
