Report: Missouri's safety net cannot serve patients without Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood is a crucial component of the health care safety net — but some lawmakers are working to discriminate against Planned Parenthood patients and block them from getting preventive care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

Missouri's health care safety net needs more resources — not fewer providers.
