(CNN) -- Missouri moved closer to becoming the first state without an abortion clinic Friday when its health department rejected a license renewal for the St. Louis Planned Parenthood location.

A judge had ordered the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services to decide by Friday whether it would renew a license for the clinic, Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region. Judge Michael Stelzer relayed the health department's decision Friday in court.

LIVE UPDATES

The clinic will remain open until further court order, Stelzer added. Should it close, Missouri would become the first state without an abortion clinic in almost 50 years.

The battle has been brewing for weeks, as states across the country move to restrict access to the procedure.

The St. Louis Planned Parenthood clinic sued the state's health department for refusing to renew its license, which was set to expire May 31. Stelzer granted a preliminary injunction that let the facility keep performing abortions while state officials decided on its license.

M'Evie Mead of Planned Parenthood praised the judge Friday for keeping the clinic open for now.

1. This is such a travesty for all of the women of Missouri who need access. It sickens me that

my home state is doing this.

4. The official who requires these unnecessary procedures is guilty of borderline malpractrice.

Why aren't doctors and the AMA speaking out to protect their colleagues from overreaching government regulation?

"They came for the abortion providers, and I said nothing, because I was not an abortion provider."
