Statement from Yamelsie Rodríguez, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri:

“When the state blocked funding for Medicaid patients who access care at Planned Parenthood last summer, we made a decision to continue treating those Medicaid patients who rely on us for their essential health care, knowing that solution may not be feasible in the long term. Despite the state’s irresponsible and unconstitutional actions, people still need access to care, and the safety net in our state is not equipped to help the thousands of patients who would no longer be able to receive their care at Planned Parenthood. It’s time for Missouri’s political leaders to own up to their responsibility to the citizens of this great state. Governor Parson must immediately stop discriminating against patients who seek care from the largest family planning provider in our region.”

Statement from Brandon Hill, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Great Plains:

“The evidence and public health data are clear— Missouri needs more Medicaid providers. While the Legislature is trying to force a nonprofit out of the business of helping people who need access to our life-saving services, Planned Parenthood has continued to provide health care. Despite the fact that the state isn’t holding up its end of the bargain, we want to continue to provide access to care under Medicaid. We look forward to a decision from the court that will allow us to keep helping all Missourians get the care they deserve.”
