WHAT:  Available for media interviews following hearing in Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri v. Drummond

WHERE:  Missouri Court of Appeals, 1300 Oak St., Kansas City, Mo.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Alliance Defense Fund Senior Legal Counsel Steven H. Aden will be available for media interviews following his oral arguments in defense of a state law being challenged by Planned Parenthood.  Aden will be asking the court to uphold the decision of a lower court which determined that abortion clinics that dispense abortion-inducing drugs must abide by the same health and safety standards as other abortion clinics.

“A woman’s life is worth more than Planned Parenthood’s bottom line,” said Aden.  “Planned Parenthood’s unwillingness to abide by even the most common-sense safety standards demonstrates where its priorities lie.  Planned Parenthood should not get a pass when it comes to safety regulations that all medical facilities must follow.  Certainly that should also apply to clinics that dispense abortion-inducing drugs, which are proven to also have serious side effects.”

ADF attorneys represent Missouri Director of Health and Senior Services Jane Drummond in defending the health and safety law, upheld by a Missouri judge on May 9 in the lawsuit Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri v. Drummond
