Protesters Rally in St Louis as Planned Parenthood Considers Closing Last Missouri Clinic
Protesters rallied in St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday, May 30, to register their dissent against the potential closing 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.
This came after the governor signed a recent bill that will severely restrict abortions in the state come August.
Video from St Louis shows protesters gathered, waving signs and chanting slogans.
The ACLU said over 500 demonstrators joined the protests on Thursday.
