JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Government funding for Planned Parenthood is at stake in a lawsuit before the Missouri Supreme Court.
State attorneys on Tuesday will ask Supreme Court judges to back the Republican-led Legislature's decision to block funding from going to Planned Parenthood clinics.
A lower court previously ruled that the move was unconstitutional.
Planned Parenthood argues that some of its chapters provide preventative health care and not abortion and shouldn’t be financially penalized.
