Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri filed a federal lawsuit on Aug. 20 challenging a new state law that could force two of the state’s three abortion clinics to shut down. The group is asking a federal judge to issue an injunction preventing the law from taking effect as scheduled on Aug. 28.

The law requires abortion providers to meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers. Planned Parenthood’s St. Louis facility already complies with the new standards but its Columbia and Kansas City clinics do not. The group claims the law effectively eliminates abortion access for many women by imposing unnecessary requirements on clinic operations.
