Jefferson City, Mo.  – Attorney General Josh Hawley released the following statement on the federal district court’s order on Planned Parenthood v. Williams:

“Today a federal court struck down large portions of Missouri law that protect the health and safety of women who seek to obtain an abortion,” said Hawley. “This decision was wrong. I will appeal. Missouri has an obligation to do everything possible to ensure the health and safety of women undergoing medical procedures in state licensed medical facilities.”
