Two of Missouri’s three abortion clinics face closure or expensive upgrades under new regulations on abortion providers Gov. Matt Blunt signed into law on July 6. The law also prohibits people affiliated with abortion providers from providing sex education materials to public schools.

HB 1055 requires abortion providers to meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers. Officials from Planned Parenthood told The Associated Press the new standards will force it to spend $2 million to upgrade its Columbia facility. Its Kansas City office, which only provides abortions induced by medication, will likely have to cease offering the service. Planned Parenthood’s St. Louis facility already meets the new standards.
