MU announces it's discontinuing privileges granted to abortion doctor

The University of Missouri has announced it will discontinue a category of doctor privileges it granted last year to a doctor who provides medication-induced abortions at Planned Parenthood in Columbia.

The executive committee of the medical staff of MU Health Care voted unanimously to discontinue "refer and follow" privileges at MU Health care facilities, effective Dec. 1. Dr. Colleen McNicholas, who has performed medication-induced abortions at Planned Parenthood in Columbia since July, is one of two medical providers who have been granted "refer and follow" privileges.

Protest at Pathology Services Inc. centers on questions surrounding handling of tissue from unborn babies


About three dozen people lined the sidewalk in front of Pathology Services Inc. this weekend to protest the company's business with Planned Parenthood. They also wanted answers to what the lab does to fetal remains from abortions after pathology examinations.

Last month at a hearing of the Missouri Senate's Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life, which is investigating how Planned Parenthood operates in Missouri, it was revealed that Brentwood-based Pathology Services Inc. is the third-party provider of pathology services for abortions performed at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis.

ProtestPP rally draws more than 700 to St. Louis Planned Parenthood

Lisa Johnston | | Twitter: @aeternusphoto After the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives discussing the harvesting and sale of baby body parts, efforts to defund the abortion provider have swept across the country. In St. Louis, named in undercover videos as an "untapped market" for fetal organs, local pro-life groups have been more visible in their efforts to call attention to their cause. Over 700 attended a rally outside the Planned Parenthood facility on Forrest Park Blvd. in St. Louis on Saturday, Aug. 22.

It was easy to imagine the pouring rain last weekend outside Planned Parenthood as symbolic of God’s tears over the atrocity of killing His creation.

Aug. 22 was the latest rally for pro-lifers to speak out against Planned Parenthood, which has been the subject of a series of undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress, featuring discussions about the sale of fetal tissue, on the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis.
