Planned Parenthood in Missouri, the only abortion clinic in the state, lost its license on Friday, to run the procedure, but a judge has ordered the clinic to stay open and allow it to continue to perform abortions until a final decision has been reached.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson, which banned all abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy-the only exception relates to the health complications, no rape or incest — said in a statement, the clinic had “failed to meet basic standards of care, placed several patients in life-threatening situations, several failed abortions, where patients pregnant remained, and intentionally, the state will not interfere with the health of the investigation by talking to the health inspectors to order the abortion doctors.”

The Missouri Department of health informs planned Parenthood are not renewed the license because it had failed to correct 30 deficiencies by the Department during the inspections, Dr. Randall Williams, Director of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, said at a press conference.

In addition, Department of health investigators said the clinic was responsible for the “three failed abortions” require additional operations, and a fourth, led to life-threatening complications for the mother, The Associated Press reported this week, citing a now-sealed court filing.

The state Agency allowed the clinic’s license expires as of the 1. June, but St. Louis Circuit Judge Michael Stelzer, said the health Department had to make a final decision on whether or not the license will be renewed on Friday.

M Evie Mead, Director of planned Parenthood advocates in Missouri, claims the licensing battle is only hindering an excuse for the conservative government on the right to abortion in Missouri, one of the States in the entire nation rules of flirting with the right to overthrow the power of the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade.
