Federal Ruling: Missouri Planned Parenthood Cannot Perform Abortions

Published

on

An abortion clinic in Missouri has lost a federal court battle, ruling that the clinic is not allowed to perform abortions.

Planned Parenthood in Columbia, Missouri has been federally mandated not to perform abortions, after losing its court case against the state. The current law in the state of Missouri prohibits abortions being performed when doctors do not have hospital admitting privileges – Planned Parenthood tried to fight the law.

The Columbia Planned Parenthood location has been legally unable to perform abortions since 2015, being unable to hire a doctor with hospital admitting privileges after “a panel of medical staff at University of Missouri Health Care decided to stop offering the privileges…,” The Washington Post reports.

To combat the ‘hospital admitting privileges’ law, Planned Parenthood Great Plains (that manages the Columbia location) filed a motion to be excused from the law. Live Action reports, “U.S. Western District Court Judge Brian Wimes ruled that the physician requirement did not affect enough women to constitute “undue burden.” He also found that requiring women to drive further for an abortion was not enough of a burden to rule in Planned Parenthood’s favor.”

Since this ruling now means that the number of active abortion clinics in the state has dwindled down to just one in St. Louis, Planned Parenthood is heated that their revenue is going down.

However, Judge Wimes is not concerned about the money Planned Parenthood is going to lose. The Columbia Missourian reports Judge Wimes reasoning for the ruling:

“The record does not include evidence of the other relevant burdens associated with (admitting privileges). In particular, (Planned Parenthood did) not present evidence of attempts to find physicians with hospital privileges willing to provide abortion services at the Columbia Facility, or evidence of fewer doctors, longer wait times, and increased crowding at (the clinic in St. Louis that provides abortions).”

“Finally, the record does not provide a basis in evidence to approximate the number of women who will forego or postpone surgical abortion incidental to the inoperability of the Columbia Facility.”

University of Pennsylvania Workers Overwhelmingly Support the Democrat Party

From Top to Bottom Universities are in the Tank for Democrats

Employees at the University of Pennsylvania are overwhelmingly in the tank for the Democrat Party.

Ophelia Jacobson of Campus Reform reported that University of Pennsylvania employees contributed to Democrat candidates, campaigns, and organizations between 2019 and 2020. Campus Reform was able to gather the data by turning to the Federal Election Commission.

Per the Campus Reform analysis, a whopping 97.6 percent of campaign contributions in 2019 and 2020 made by Penn instructors, staff, and administrators were sent to “Democratic organizations, candidates, and their campaigns.” Some of these groups and causes included ActBlue, Win the Era PAC, Biden for President, and MoveOn Political Action.

The remaining 2.4 percent of contributions went to Republican causes. These included WinRed, Donald J. Trump for President, and the Republican National Committee.

To get more specific, of the 715 donations that Penn faculty members made, just 11 were sent to Republican candidates, institutions or campaigns. This number represented 1.5 percent of campaign contributions pitched in by faculty members. The remaining 98.4 percent of donations were sent to Democrat causes.

Staff contributions showed similar trends. 97.6 percent of contributions were sent to Democrat campaigns, candidates, or organizations, whereas 2.4 percent were sent to Republicans.

Penn administrators donated 731 times during the time-frame of 2019 and 2020. Curiously, 21 of those 731 contributions (2.8 percent) were only made to Republican causes and the remainder (97.1 percent) were sent to Democrat causes.

This analysis reported that ActBlue was the principal organization that Penn workers donated to as far as Democrats institutions were concerned. In contrast, WinRed was the largest recipient of donations of all the Republican organizations.

Just another case of an American institution of higher learning being filled with leftist staff across the board. Let’s face it, universities are a magnet for the Left and work to perpetuate such a political paradigm.

Conservatives should take note. These institutions and the drones who work for them are the enemy. In light of this, the Right should aim to defund public universities and make sure to attend alternative educational institutions if possible. These institutions do not deserve a single penny from right wingers.
