Missouri’s last abortion provider will remain open after a St. Louis judge issued a preliminary injunction Monday.

St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Michael Stelzer’s ruling prevents the Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region’s medical license from expiring, granting the state until June 21 to decide whether its license should be revoked.

“Today’s decision is a clear victory for our patients — and for people across Missouri — but the threat to safe, legal abortion in the state of Missouri and beyond is far from over," Dr. Leana Wen, president and CEO of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement Monday. "We’ve seen just how closely anti-health politicians came to ending abortion care for an entire state. We are in a state of emergency for women’s health in America. In Missouri, and across the country, Planned Parenthood will do whatever it takes to combat the extreme, dangerous, and unconstitutional efforts by politicians to ban access to health care including safe, legal abortion. We will never stop fighting for our patients.”

The Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis region filed a lawsuit last month after the state’s Department of Health & Senior Services failed to renew the clinic’s license. According to Republican Gov. Mike Parson, the clinic needed to undergo a state audit because of “a number of serious health concerns,” such as botched abortions.

As part of the audit, the state wants to interview physicians and residents working at the clinic. But Planned Parenthood has resisted because it claims the doctors aren’t staffers, and so it is unable to require them to comply with the audit.

Stelzer, who said Monday that he was not weighing in on whether the license should be renewed or not, wrote last week that "the non-parties have shown that compliance with the subpoenas would present an undue burden and hardship on [the non-Planned Parenthood physicians] and that the subpoenas should be quashed."
