Missouri Down to One Abortion Facility as Columbia Planned Parenthood Loses Hospital Privileges

Ultrasound Credit Tomasz Kobosz-compressedCOLUMBIA, Mo. — The state of Missouri is down to one remaining abortion facility after a local hospital cancelled the admitting privileges of an abortionist at the Columbia location.

Planned Parenthood of Columbia ceased providing medical abortions on Monday as the University of Missouri Health Care has decided to discontinue the privileges, which effective Dec. 1, means that abortionist Colleen McNicholas cannot legally provide abortifacients at the location.

The hospital voted in September to no longer offer the “refer and follow” privileges, which allowed Planned Parenthood to obtain permission from the state health department to offer medical abortions. Without the privileges, the Columbia location loses any authority to offer abortifacients to mothers.

Planned Parenthood supporters are now planning to hold a rally and march next Monday in an effort to pressure interim Chancellor Hank Foley into postponing or changing his mind about rescinding the hospital privileges. A postponement would allow Planned Parenthood additional time to find another hospital to grant privileges or to find another abortionist who currently has the admitting privileges.

But some pro-lifers welcomed the news as they released balloons outside of the location on Monday, one for each baby who died after the health department granted Planned Parenthood’s abortion license this past summer.

“We give all the honor and glory and victory to God,” Kathy Forck of 40 Days for Life told reporters. “This is God’s victory.”

As previously reported, not many years after the birth of America, a number of lawmakers, lawyers and doctors adamantly stood against abortion as an immoral evil.

“We blush, while we record the fact that in this country, in our cities and towns, in this city, where literature, science, morality and Christianity are supposed to have so much influence; where all the domestic and social virtues are reported as being in full and delightful exercise; even here, individuals, male and female, exist, who are continually imbruing their hands and consciences in the blood of unborn infants,” said Dr. Hugh Lennox Hodge, a Philadelphia obstetrician and a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, in 1854.

It is recorded that Illinois was the first state to completely outlaw abortion as laws were passed in 1827. By the 1900′s, however, due to the influence of a ruling by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, nearly every state in the nation prohibited abortion for any reason, with the exception of Arkansas, Mississippi and North Carolina.

    If all these clinics are closing why do we not see a huge drop in abortions ?
    The fact is that many are now chemical and some doctors do them in their office.

      Very true – we are seeing a drop but not as much as we would like. Still, every baby saved is hugely valuable.

      At our abortion mill yesterday, the parking lot was filled with clients, many who were having chemical abortions. Just in time to “deliver” their murdered babies into toilets on Thanksgiving Day. 🙁

      The only way to really cut the number of abortions down is to make it illegal with harsh penalties for abortionists. Since something like 90% plus of abortions prior to Roe and Doe were also done in doctor’s offices, the baby killers will at least be taking a risk, knowing that there is a decent chance that they will be outed. It may even be easier now, since we have very good documented information out there on just who the abortionists are and where they operate, thanks to the internet.

        I’m not sure calling women murderers and baby killers will garner their support.

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          Nice shifting of the goalposts – not. 🙂 It is clear that I am referring to abortionists in my post, although some abortionists, like the one at our abortuary, ARE women. Sweetest most mild-mannered little cold-blooded mass killer you have ever met. Thinks she is a “christian” too.

          Along those lines, I am not really interested in getting the support of baby killers. I AM highly interested in getting them to repent, and to put them in jail for crimes against humanity if they do not and if we make this modern-day holocaust illegal.

          • gizmo23

            The woman getting the abortion is as much a part of it as the doctor

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            It is a valid point you raise. She certainly signs off on the killing of her baby, that is for sure.

            That is why I heavily support crisis pregnancy centers, spend a lot of time commenting on this issue – offline and online – and try to reach out to these women on the sidewalk to NOT make the decision that will kill their baby and wound them for life. I even reach out to the abortionist and so-called deathscorts. They need love and truth too – badly. Happy Thanksgiving, Giszmo23!

            Happy thanksgiving.

          • LadyFreeBird<In God I Trust

            To make this modern-day holocaust illegal would be a great gift to Humanity. It is sad that Pro-Aborts do not see these Abortionist as mass killers. Even though they kill thousands upon thousands of Humans.Whats even more sad is when the say they are Christian 🙁

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            So true. Great comment.

          • LadyFreeBird<In God I Trust

            Thank you

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Happy Thanksgiving, BTW!

            Happy Thanksgiving.

        Would you give women the death penalty for having one?

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          I am not a fan of the death penalty at all, especially since the pro-abortion side enacts it 1.2 million times per year to the most innocent – in America alone.

          What is particularly strange to me is that pro-aborts believe in the death penalty for the most innocent – tens of millions of the most innocent – yet are staunchly against it for relatively rare convicted cop killers and mass murderers. That seems backwards to me.

    I think this is wonderful news, but I’m not sure it’s accurate. There are at least 5 more PPH clinics in St. Louis and Kansas City, MO area. I’m very happy so many are closing, pulling arms and legs off of a baby or doing anything to stop a beating heart is without excuse.

  • WorldGoneCrazy

    Good job by University of Missouri Health Care! That’s health care, not death care.

  • BarkingDawg

    If it turns out that the Colorado Springs gunman is a right wing, domestic terrorist, how many here will applaud what he did?

    Too many, I fear.
