ST. LOUIS – Missouri’s health department director says he believes an agreement can be reached with Planned Parenthood that would keep open Missouri’s only abortion clinic.

Director Randall Williams testified Tuesday during the second day of a state adminstrative hearing that will decide if the state can revoke Planned Parenthood’s abortion license for its St. Louis clinic.

The state moved to revoke the license in June, citing concerns about “failed abortions.”

Williams testified that two of the doctors have now been deposed, and the information they provided was helpful in learning what happened with four instances where abortions went wrong. He believes there are solutions that both the state and Planned Parenthood could accept.

The clinic remains open until the Administrative Hearing Commission ruling, which will come no sooner than February.
