U of Missouri Ends Ties to Planned Parenthood

September 17, 2015

University of Missouri campuses have ended all 10 of their formal relationships with Planned Parenthood, The Columbia Missourian reported. While not all of the relationships were active, they allowed medical and nursing school students to have clinical training at Planned Parenthood clinics. University officials stressed that no student was ever required to work at Planned Parenthood, which has become a target of increased scrutiny over videos secretly recorded and distributed by critics of the organization. In Missouri, the Senate Interim Committee on the Sanctity of Life has been investigating state agencies' links to Planned Parenthood.
