Missouri GOP Attorney General Andrew Bailey has filed a lawsuit against a Planned Parenthood chapter alleging that it has been “trafficking minors” across state lines to get abortions without parental consent.

“This is the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood in the State of Missouri,” Bailey wrote on the social media platform, X. “This lawsuit is the culmination of a multi-year campaign to drive Planned Parenthood from the State of Missouri because of its flagrant and intentional refusal to comply with state law.”
