Missouri's lone abortion clinic ironically fighting to stay alive

Planned Parenthood building 3Efforts to shut down Missouri last remaining abortion clinic have been delayed.

The clinic in St. Louis, Missouri, is a Planned Parenthood abortion facility that has failed health and safety inspections, which has contributed to its rather dismal record.

Operation Rescue Senior Vice President Cheryl Sullenger believes if there is one abortion clinic that should be forced to close its doors in America, it’s this facility overseen by the world’s largest abortion provider in the Show Me State.

“We consider it the most dangerous abortion clinic in the country, and we've seen 74 women taken away in ambulances here, so we know that women's lives are in danger, and, of course innocent baby's lives are being taken every day,” Sullenger informed in a statement released by Operation Rescue.

The Planned Parenthood also has a long record of failed inspections over the years.

Operation Rescue discovered black mold in pipes of abortion suction machines, as well as blood on equipment.

The state health department is also concerned about four documented botched abortions – two of which involved serious consequences for two patients.

“They need to give an account for why these women suffered in the way they did,” Sullenger demanded. “They're not cooperating, so now it's going to this administrative hearing commission, and hopefully, they'll be able to get this resolved in favor of the state – and the rule of law in Missouri.”

Both sides of the argument have agreed to a five-day hearing, which is slated for between October 28- and November 1 this fall – rather than one day and a limit on witnesses to 15.

In addition, Planned Parenthood attorneys have announced they will request that more of their documents be sealed and kept away from the public access.
