Order: Abortions can continue at Missouri's lone clinic

Missouri’s only abortion clinic has taken a legal fight over its license to a state administrative panel. The St. Louis Planned Parenthood affiliate on Monday, June 24, 2019, filed a complaint against the health department with Missouri’s Administrative Hearing Commission. The panel handles disputes between state agencies and businesses. Abortions at the clinic could end if the commission does not act before a court order protecting the procedure expires Friday. A hearing has not yet been set. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)

We are weary at the Post-Dispatch and its editorial writers for their derisive allusion to so-called pro-lifers. The liberal media constantly attacks pro-lifers as being “pro-birth,” as if the mother is abandoned after childbirth. In our years of being active in the movement against the termination of life in the womb, we are joined by many support organizations, including Birthright, Our Lady’s Inn, Our Little Haven and Covenant House. One of the major societal problems today is that we project a certain persona on those we disagree with.
