It was announced Thursday that the University of Missouri will end its relationship with abortion doctor Colleen McNicholas effective December 1st.
The Universtiy of Missouri Hospital is ending a category of doctor privileges called “refer and follow.” MU officials said only two out of 800 doctors had this kind of privilege, including McNicholas, and it was “outdated and unnecessary.”
As a result of this decision, McNicholas will no longer have privileges at the university hospital. Furthermore, because state law requires a doctor to have privileges or an agreement with a hospital, McNicholas will no longer be able to perform abortions in Columbia, unless she obtains privileges or an agreement with some other hospital.
This statement comes after the MCC, state legislators, and many other pro-life supporters encouraged Chancellor Loftin and the MU Board of Curators to end its relationship with Dr. McNicholas, and get out of the abortion industry. The overwhelming response to MCC action alerts certainly made an impact on the decision of MU officials. We thank you immensely for your support! Read more about the decision in the St. Louis Review, the St. Louis Post Dispatch and the Columbia Daily Tribune.
The MCC is thrilled with this news after a month of campaigning for MU to get out of the abortion business through action alerts, radio spots, videos and letters to MU officials. Thank you, Mizzou, for staying true to your colors and restoring the pride back to our great university.
