Planned Parenthood, ACLU file lawsuit against Senate bill establishing new standards for abortions

Several Planned Parenthood branches and the ACLU of Missouri have filed a lawsuit against a Senate bill that establishes new standards for abortion facilities.

The lawsuit, filed in state court Oct. 10 by Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood Great Plains, Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and the ACLU of Missouri, asks the court to block SB 5, noting that it "severely restricts access to safe, legal abortion for Missourians."
