The St. Louis Fire Department has settled a public records lawsuit brought by activists seeking access to information about medical responses to a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
The lawsuit was filed in 2013 under Missouri’s Sunshine Law, seeking records of emergency medical incidents at the Planned Parenthood of Greater St. Louis abortion facility located at 4251 Forest Park Avenue, Saint Louis. The named plaintiff was Deborah Myers but the suit was brought on behalf of the group Operation Rescue.
The settlement calls for the department to release a listing of every medical run to the facility without disclosing any confidential information. The department will not release anything but the “Problem” and “Priority” fields of the Medical Dispatch Agency Incident Reports.
Here is an affidavit provided by St. Louis Fire Department Captain Carolyn Moore, who serves as the keeper of the records, along with the information actually released.
