Missouri AG Andrew Bailey Sues Planned Parenthood After KC Clinic Caught Trafficking Minors to Kansas For Abortions

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed suit against Planned Parenthood Great Plains Thursday after a Kansas City clinic was caught in a conspiracy to traffic minors out of state to obtain abortions without parental consent.

“Today, I’m proud to announce that the state of Missouri is moving forward with a lawsuit to permanently drive Planned Parenthood from the state of Missouri,” Bailey announced.

Planned Parenthood Great Plains has locations throughout Missouri that provide sexual and reproductive health care, as well as “gender-affirming care” services.  Planned Parenthood (PPFA) clinics in Missouri can no longer provide abortion services because the state made the practice illegal after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

The lawsuit comes after a Project Veritas investigation into the Kansas City clinic late last year uncovered a conspiracy to traffic minors across state lines to obtain abortions without their parents’ consent.

“The investigation revealed that Planned Parenthood removes minors from school using altered doctors’ notes, transports them into Kansas for abortions, and then quickly returns them—all to avoid the legal requirement to obtain parental consent,” Bailey said in a press release Thursday.

The Project Veritas undercover video, released on December 21-2023,  features Kansas City Planned Parenthood Managing Director “Lashuana” explaining how PPFA will bypass laws to help a 13-year-old get an abortion in Kansas.

“We never tell the parents anything,” Lashuana told the undercover Veritas journalist. “They will bypass without the parents. You just have to make sure you tell them that when you call,” she said. “And we can cut off our letterhead, so it doesn’t even say where she was. Trust me, this is not our first rodeo.”

Lashuana also detailed how the child would be trafficked at no cost to the individuals seeking the abortion.

“They have people that’ll come pick them [minor] up. They have people that will pay for the whole thing,” she explained.

Lashuana told the Veritas journalist that they could also give the child a doctor’s note for school so she would have an excused absence.

“It doesn’t matter if the school agrees or not, we say that she was at the doctor. They have to take it,” she said.


“An agent of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Kansas City brazenly committed to past, present, and future violations of this state’s laws regarding proper parental consent notification, a conspiracy to traffic women out of state for abortions, and a conspiracy to conceal the sexual exploitation of children,” Baily said. “Worse, they admit doing this ‘every day, every day, every day.'”

The attorney general also said that he is is seeking injunctive relief to block the clinic from exploiting more children.

“This is the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood in the State of Missouri,” Bailey declared.

What they conceal and conspire to do in the dark of night has now been uncovered. I am filing suit to ensure it never happens again,” said Attorney General Bailey. “As a father who held my daughter in my arms for the single hour of her life before she died, I know firsthand how important it is to protect life. Our children are the future. It is time to eradicate Planned Parenthood once and for all to end this pattern of abhorrent, unethical, and illegal behavior.

Baily said the lawsuit is “the culmination of a multi-year campaign to drive Planned Parenthood from the State of Missouri because of its flagrant and intentional refusal to comply with state law.”

The lawsuit laid out Planned Parenthood’s pattern of statutory violations in Missouri:

In 2018, following at least a half-decade of health-code violations, Planned Parenthood’s facility in Columbia was shut down after staff admitted to having used moldy abortion equipment on women for months.

Also in 2018, Planned Parenthood physicians conceded in open court that, for at least 15 years, the organization failed to comply with state law requiring physicians performing abortions to file reports when women experience medical complications from abortions.

In 2020, the Administrative Hearing Commission determined that even though Missouri law at the time required that the same physician who performs an abortion be the one to notify the woman of the risks of abortion, physicians at Planned Parenthood were not doing so.

“It is against the law in Missouri to intentionally cause, aid, or assist a minor to obtain an abortion without parental consent in another state. § 188.250, RSMo,” Bailey stated.
