Jefferson City, Mo. – Ryan Johnson, President of Missouri Alliance for Freedom, today issued the following statement on a letter from Senator Kurt Schaefer to University of Missouri Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin, on the claim that University of Missouri Health Care is the hospital in question enabling abortion services at the Planned Parenthood facility in Columbia:

“The University of Missouri is a cherished institution. Tens of thousands of Missourians of all political stripes count their years at MIZZOU among their best." said Ryan Johnson, President of the Missouri Alliance for Freedom, a conservative public interest group.  "However, it is shameful news that this publicly-funded entity, that has received billions of taxpayer funds over the years, may be enabling abortion services at Planned Parenthood in Columbia.  In light of the expose of Planned Parenthood’s grotesque business practices, which includes the trafficking of aborted baby body parts, it is unconscionable that a revered institution such as the University of Missouri system would allow themselves to be associated with Planned Parenthood.  It also raises serious questions about why DHSS Director Gail Vasterling withheld this information from the Committee on the Sanctity of Life which continues to investigate Planned Parenthood in Missouri."
