Missouri is threatening to pull a Planned Parenthood clinic’s license to perform abortions this week. If that happens, Missouri will become the only state with no abortion clinics. The state’s health department is investigating the clinic because of a “large number of deficiencies." Planned Parenthood says it will sue if the license is revoked. This comes as Indiana, Louisiana, and Alabama all have moved to severely restrict abortion.
