Investigative journalist reveals origin of 'fake news'
If you think the concept of "fake news" started with Donald Trump, you'd be wrong. As it turns out, so-called "progressives" got the ball rolling – and it came back to bite them.
A leader in Missouri's pro-life movement is celebrating what she considers to be a common-sense court ruling.
Missouri law, in part, requires abortionists to have hospital privileges at a local hospital and that abortion-minded women wait 72 hours before having an abortion. U.S. District Judge Howard Sachs issued an injunction blocking implementation of that law, but Susan Klein of Missouri Right to Life tells OneNewsNow that Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley appealed Sachs' ruling to the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of appeals.
"[That court] has decided that they are going to remove that injunction – so whenever they did that, that allowed our laws to go back into effect," she explains, referring to the temporary stay issued. "[That means] abortion clinics in Missouri have to abide by those ambulatory surgical center regulations as well as those hospital privilege requirements."
The next step is for the full Eighth Circuit to hear the appeal.
The idea behind the law, says Klein, is to protect women who seek an abortion by establishing reasonable requirements. She describes those requirements.
"Whether the abortion facilities have to have clean facilities, have qualified medical personnel, have a physician who has hospital admitting privileges," she lists. "They're common-sense medical requirements – and we're excited that the court has seen that, and that they're going to review this case and hopefully keep our laws in effect."
The ruling puts a halt to Planned Parenthood's plans to open in a few days three additional clinics in Missouri, none of which can comply with the state law. Operation Rescue has also expressed gratitude for the last-minute reprieve, but points out the stay doesn't affect a newly licensed PP clinic in Kansas City it says plans to start dispensing abortion pills as early as next week.
