Missouri's health department on Friday rejected a license renewal request from a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Louis, the last remaining abortion clinic in the state.
Pro-life groups had been calling for the clinic's closure.
"This particular facility's track record shows an appalling pattern of botched abortions and other violations that prove they are incapable of policing themselves," Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, said May 31. "Planned Parenthood does not deserve special treatment and the health and safety of women should never come second to the abortion industry's bottom line."
Planned Parenthood had filed a lawsuit after state health officials initially said the clinic failed to meet safety standards and would not be receiving a license renewal.
