Kan. abortion clinic denied license, may close - CBS News

Kan. abortion clinic denied license, may close - CBS News

A Kansas City area clinic has been denied a state license that would allow it to continue performing abortions and will probably close, the clinic's attorney said Friday.


Kansas enacted a law earlier this year establishing a special licensing process for abortion providers, and the state's three abortion clinics must either get licenses or stop offering the procedure on July 1.


An attorney for the Aid for Women clinic said it received a notice that its application for a license had been denied by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment without an inspection, and she was looking at its legal options. But Cheryl Pilate also said the clinic would have to close, at least temporarily.
