MU study on abortion prompts questions, challenges

The University of Missouri says it isn't violating state law or its conflict of interest policy in regards to a study on the effect of the 72-hour waiting period for abortion in Missouri. But several critics have questioned that line of thinking.

Senate hearing, rally draws attention to frustration with Planned Parenthood’s practices

JEFFERSON CITY — A heated debate about terminology used to describe aborted babies was one of the highlights from testimony presented before a Senate committee investigating Planned Parenthood's practices in Missouri.

Planned Parenthood cited for inaction with pathology reports

Pathology Services, Inc., is an independent pathology laboratory specializing in surgical pathology and cytology services. They are the third-party provider of pathology services for abortions performed at Planned Parenthood. The company was named at a hearing of the Missouri Senate Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life, which is investigating how Planned Parenthood operates in Missouri.

Planned Parenthood in St. Louis was cited earlier this year for not sending pathology reports from abortions to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, as required by law.

That was the latest item revealed at an Aug. 25 hearing of the Missouri Senate's Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life, which is investigating how Planned Parenthood operates in Missouri. The committee began meeting this month in response to the Center for Medical Progress' undercover videos depicting Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of fetal body parts.
