St. Louis Post-Dispatch Covers Winston Calvert's Arguments to Protect Private Medical Records

The Post-Dispatch reports today that anti-women's rights activists have sought private medical records of a medical facility in St. Louis.  The activists, who sought to obtain the records so they could publicize the names of women seeking reproductive services, sought medical records from the City under Missouri's Sunshine Law.  In response, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch quoted Calvert as saying: 

Winston Calvert, city counselor, said “the Sunshine Law is designed to ensure public access to public information, not to snoop in a stranger’s private medical records. It would be a shame if the Sunshine Law was used to obtain private medical information as part of a campaign to intimidate women seeking medical care.”
