JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Without his signature, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has allowed legislation that will require doctors to be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medication abortions.

Nixon announced Friday he would not sign the bill that effectively prohibits the use of telemedicine to provide medication abortions in Missouri. Without the signature, the bill becomes law.

The Guttmacher Institute that supports abortion rights said 10 states require a prescribing doctor be present. Enforcement of the requirement has been temporarily blocked in North Dakota and Wisconsin because of litigation.

Planned Parenthood for the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri says it has not used telemedicine for medication abortions. But that option has been available since 2008 in Iowa.

It was the lowest of six bids submitted for the project, which will connect the Arch grounds with downtown St. Louis.

Crestwood Mall to close on Thursday

Wednesday, 10 July 2013 07:29 Published in Local News

The Crestwood Court Mall will soon be shuttering its doors for good. The 55-year-old mall, the oldest in St. Louis County, now has a sign on the door telling patrons that it will be closed for good on Thursday. Lens Crafters is the only store that will remain open. They have a separate entrance to the mall. Centrum Partners is the Chicago-based developer that owns Crestwood Court. Last year they proposed a $100-million plan to convert the area into an entertainment district, but the city Crestwood says the asking price of $34 million in tax increment financing is too steep a price.
