JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Some University of Missouri students are expressing frustration with the campus chancellor after a Columbia Planned Parenthood clinic stopped performing abortions.
Mizzou for Planned Parenthood organizer Dina van der Zalm says a Wednesday meeting with interim Chancellor Hank Foley to talk about how the school could help the clinic was canceled.
University spokesman Christian Basi says no meeting with Foley was scheduled. He said university representatives have met with the group, and that the school is open to talking.
The students’ frustration comes as a Planned Parenthood doctor faces losing privileges with MU Health Care Tuesday. Without physician privileges, the Columbia clinic will lose its license to provide abortions.
Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri says it likely will take legal action if it doesn’t have a physician with privileges.
