Missouri AG Takes Stand Against Planned Parenthood

In a bold move to uphold Missouri’s pro-life standards, Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed a new lawsuit on Thursday against Planned Parenthood Great Plains, accusing the organization of bypassing state laws that require parental consent for minors seeking abortions. The complaint filed with the Boone County, Missouri, Circuit Court targets the allegedly illegal practice of transporting minors across state lines to obtain abortions.

Missouri has been at the forefront of the pro-life movement, especially after the pivotal Dobbs Supreme Court decision in 2022 that empowered states to assert local control over abortion regulation.

The attorney general’s actions follow alarming revelations from an undercover investigation by Project Veritas. The footage, according to Bailey, exposed Planned Parenthood staff admitting to aiding minors in obtaining abortions without their parents’ consent, a clear violation of Missouri law. The lawsuit further highlights disturbing practices such as removing minors from schools with altered doctors’ notes and shuttling them to neighboring Kansas, where abortion laws are less restrictive.

In a Thursday press release, Bailey stated, “As a father who held my daughter in my arms for the single hour of her life before she died, I know firsthand how important it is to protect life. Our children are the future.”


The end of Roe has placed the spotlight on local law enforcement officials like Attorney General Bailey around the nation. Under the control of the Biden administration, the federal government is sure to take the side of radical abortion industry activists like Planned Parenthood, placing more importance than ever on providing robust support to local leaders and officials in the fight to protect unborn life wherever possible.
