Judge weighs fate of Missouri's only abortion clinic

***EDITORS PLEASE NOTE THIS STORY IS BEING RESENT WITH THE FOLLOWING LINE DELETED;"The ruling will determine whether the clinic will be allowed to perform abortions without a state license." THIS NOT CORRECT.

WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE ERROR.** Nats: "Pro-life, pro woman." Anti-abortion advocates protested outside Missouri's only abortion clinic Tuesday -- awaiting a judge's decision on whether the Planned Parenthood clinic can remain open.

Missouri officials refused to renew the clinic's license as it was about to expire last week, but a court stay has allowed the facility to stay open - for now.

If the clinic's license is not renewed, Missouri will become the only state in the U.S. without an abortion clinic since the Supreme Court's landmark Roe v.

Wade decision in 1973, which legalized abortion nationwide and recognized a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.

SOUNDBITE: M'EVIE MEAD, PLANNED PARENTHOOD ADVOCATES OF MISSOURI, SAYING: "We are very concerned about this notion that people still don't know from day to day, they're on pins and needles about whether they can access safe and legal abortion in their home state." The judge says he will work quickly to decide in the case.

Protester Stacy Washington says she had an abortion but later regretted it and is speaking out so women are aware of other options.

SOUNDBITE: STACY WASHINGTON, ANTI-ABORTION ADVOCATE, SAYING: "Our goal as a pro-life movement is to steer women to other avenues where they would be supported." Missouri is one of nine states that have passed restrictive abortion laws this year.

All are expected to face court challenges.
