    ST. LOUIS – Missouri officials are asking St. Louis police to provide security for an upcoming hearing on the state’s effort to end the abortion license for a St. Louis clinic. Both sides of the abortion issue have held vigils and protests over the licensing of Missouri’s only abortion clinic, which continues to offer abortion services while the case is pending. The next hearing is Oct. 28 at a state office building in downtown St. Louis. Administrative Hearing Commission staff attorney Ranada Vinyard told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that officials have been in contact with police because of the high-profile...

    After over a year of secret construction, Planned Parenthood announced its newest abortion facility on Wednesday: an 18,000-square-foot mega-clinic in southern Illinois. The new location is just 13 miles away from Missouri's last remaining abortion clinic, a facility in St. Louis fighting to keep its license. Since August 2018, Planned Parenthood has used a shell company to construct the facility, leaving no public trace that the former medical office would become one of the largest abortion clinics in the country. CBS News first visited the site in August, while it was still being built. Colleen McNicholas, the chief medical officer...

    Freddie Owen Graham of Lone Jack, Missouri, was jailed Thursday on $500,000 bail. Authorities say he set 13 fires on Friday and Saturday Although the blazes caused no injuries or structural damage, they took dozens of firefighters using aircraft, bulldozers and other equipment hours to extinguish. One blaze, near the Calaveras Reservoir, blackened less than a quarter of a square mile. Prosecutors say Graham drove through a foothill area northeast of San Jose, throwing flaming paper out of his car as he went. Graham, who traveled to California from the Kansas City, Missouri, suburb of Lone Jack, has no obvious...

    Kansas City officials, using a new housing inspection law, have moved residents out of a troubled Northland apartment building where they found roaches, severe plumbing problems and other dangerous health violations, the Health Department announced in a news conference Wednesday. In the building, city officials and elected leaders said they saw caved-in ceilings, mold and damp carpets. During their visit Friday, they walked through human excrement in an apartment where sewage had backed up into the toilet, sinks and bathtub. “Disgusting is the best way I can tell you what I saw,” Councilman Dan Fowler, who represents the area, said...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A federal judge has denied a request by Missouri to allow a ban on abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy to go into effect while the state waits for further court action. The Kansas Star reports that U.S. District Court Judge Howard Sachs had previously paused parts of Missouri's new abortion law. It was set to go into effect Aug. 28 and criminalizes abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy. It also triggered bans at 14, 18 and 20 weeks if the initial eight-week ban was found unconstitutional.

    For one of the last abortion doctors in Missouri, harassment, stalking and death threats are a part of regular life. But this year, it's been worse than ever. Colleen McNicholas, the chief medical officer at Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, is one of many providers who told CBS News they've seen an uptick in violence this year, both against themselves and their clinics. They say the increased harassment has coincided with newly enacted state laws restricting legal abortion and polarizing rhetoric surrounding the procedure. The National Abortion Federation has been tracking violence against abortion providers...

    Jefferson City) -- Two groups are suing Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft for his handling of an attempt to block new abortion regulations. The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri and the No Bans on Choice Committee say Ashcroft refused to issue the ballot language needed to start collecting signatures for a public vote. In a press call on Thursday, representatives of the groups say Ashcroft robbed Missourians of 78 days by giving abortion rights advocates 14 days to collect 100,000 signatures. “We had to face reality and we know that we can’t ask our volunteers in good faith to...
  • Lincoln: The Founders did not make America racist or slaver. They inherited it that way

    See the Lincoln-Douglas debate #6. Stephen Douglas: We then adopted a free State Constitution, as we had a right to do. In this State we have declared that a negro shall not be a citizen, and we have also declared that he shall not be a slave. We had a right to adopt that policy. Missouri has just as good a right to adopt the other policy. I am now speaking of rights under the Constitution, and not of moral or religious rights. I do not discuss the morals of the people of Missouri, but let them settle that matter...
  • Missouri AG Appeals Decision Blocking Ban on Abortions of Babies With Beating Hearts

    LIFE NEWS ^ | AUG, 30, 2019 | Micaiah Bilger
    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed an appeal Thursday of a judge’s decision to block a new state law that protects unborn babies from abortion after their heartbeats are detectable. Earlier this week, a federal judge blocked parts of the pro-life law in a preliminary injunction. Planned Parenthood and the American Civil Liberties Union are challenging the law in court. The Missouri Stands For the Unborn Act (HB 126) prohibits abortions after 8 weeks, once an unborn baby’s heartbeat is detectable. However, it also includes incremental stages to ban abortions after 14 weeks, 18 weeks or 20 weeks if the...

    Missouri's eight-week abortion ban was temporarily blocked from being implemented by a federal judge on Tuesday. The regulation was scheduled to go into effect on Wednesday. State legislators in May passed the "Missouri Stands for the Unborn," act, a sweeping piece of anti-abortion legislation. In addition to banning the procedure after eight weeks into a woman's pregnancy, the legislation includes a "trigger law" and a ladder of less-restrictive time limits ranging from 14 to 20 weeks, depending on what the courts find to be constitutional. In late July, Planned Parenthood, the American Civil Liberties Union, and Paul Weiss LLP —...

    After nearly 50 years, men who wrote contemporary music for Mass have their final concert togetherST. LOUIS (ChurchMilitant.com) - The men responsible for some of the most popular songs sung at Mass are having their final concert in September. Back in the 1970s, five men in formation with the Jesuits in St. Louis, Missouri, began writing songs that they would then sing during Mass — typically with accompaniment on the guitar. The songs that they wrote were simple, folksy and thoroughly modern. They became known as the St. Louis Jesuits. Each man worked independently, but they often helped each other...

  • Doctors Remove Venomous Brown Recluse Spider From Missouri Woman’s Ear

    Doctors in Kansas City, Missouri, pulled a venomous brown recluse spider out of Torres' ear, and somehow, she kept her cool. But she's never sleeping without earplugs again. She woke up Wednesday morning with popping and swishing sounds in her ear. She decided to check it out after work, though she didn't think much of it at first, she said. A medical assistant examined Torres' ear, then ran out of the room to grab more sets of eyes. Soon, two nurses, three medical students and a doctor joined the assistant in the tiny exam room to break the news--a spider...

    ST. LOUIS — Presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand trumpeted her support of abortion access and reproductive choice for women during a town hall Sunday in Delmar Hall. The event was attended by hundreds of people, days before severe abortion restrictions are set to take effect in Missouri. “We need a next president who is unabashedly pro-choice,” Gillibrand told the crowd. “Someone who is going to see women’s reproductive freedom as the basic civil rights and human rights that they are. They should be our decisions to be made, no matter what.” Gillibrand is vying for the Democratic presidential...

They rarely criticize him by name, but many of the 2020 hopefuls have implicitly attacked Obama's record on health care, immigration, and climate change, among other issues. The latest example of implied criticism, courtesy of two prominent contenders, focuses on the Obama administration's investigation into the controversial police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., in 2014. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass) and Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) marked the five-year anniversary of Brown's death on Twitter...
