Missouri's only abortion clinic to stay open until at least August 1

(Reuters) - Missouriís only abortion clinic will remain open for now after a state arbiter on Friday ordered a stay in response to Planned Parenthoodís challenge of the state health departmentís refusal to renew the clinicís license.

Planned Parenthood, the womenís healthcare and abortion provider that operates the clinic, filed a petition with Missouriís Administrative Hearing Commission on Tuesday after the group challenged the health departmentís denial in state court and a judge referred the matter to the commission.

The clinic would have had to stop providing abortion services on Friday if the commission did not grant the stay, which allows it to stay open until its initial Aug. 1 hearing date.

In its ruling, the commission noted that the issue of abortion entails great public interests for opponents and proponents, but that the only question it was considering was a motion to stay the expiration of a statutory license.
