Planned Parenthood Sues Missouri Attorney General Over Organization’s Trans Healthcare Program

(Missourinet) Planned Parenthood has sued Missouri’s attorney general over an investigation into the organization’s transgender healthcare program.

Planned Parenthood says Attorney General Andrew Bailey has made more than 50 demands, pursuing HIPAA-protected patient health information and every document that references “social media” or “Tik Tok.” The organization says its doors remain open and it is “not backing down.” In a response to Missourinet, Bailey’s office says Planned Parenthood was asked to provide “basic documents to explain several things, including why its procedures depart so far from any recognized standard of care.” Bailey’s office says rather than provide a single document to explain why it is departing so far from the standard, it says Planned Parenthood is “running to court to try to hide everything.”
