CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Supreme Court has shut down efforts by a right-to-life organization to block Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s license to dispense prescription drugs.

The three-judge panel ruled unanimously that New Hampshire Right to Life has no legal jurisdiction to challenge the license because the organization and its members have suffered no harm due to the license renewal.

NHRTL in April 2012 filed a complaint with the state’s Board of Pharmacy saying that Planned Parenthood’s license to dispense drugs had expired June 30, 2011. In response, the board granted a temporary renewal and then voted to permanently renew the license for Planned Parenthood’s six clinics in September 2012. The board also rejected NHRTL’s challenge to the renewal.

The Supreme Court in its ruling Thursday upheld the board’s actions.
