Marchers Stream Through Downtown St Louis in Protest Against Abortion Restrictions
Demonstrators marched through downtown St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday, May 30, to protest newly passed abortion restrictions and a legal dispute that may result in the closure of Missouri’s last abortion clinic, the Post Dispatch reported.
Planned Parenthood, which operates the only remaining clinic in Missouri, was locked in a legal battle over the renewal of its license and was considering closing its Belleville clinic on Friday, according to reports.
This came after Missouri’s governor signed a recent bill that will severely restrict abortions in the state come August.
Video from St Louis shows protesters marching through downtown, waving signs and chanting slogans.
The ACLU said over 500 demonstrators joined Thursday’s protests.
