'Tragic': Hundreds protest in St Louis as Missouri bans abortions | AFP

Protesters gather in front of the last clinic that was performing abortions in the state of Missouri, United States after it had to shut down its activities. "For me, it’s tragic… Women died getting abortions back then," says 68 Pamela Lukehart, with tears in her eyes remembering when they were not legal in all of the United States. She joins the protest with her granddaughter, 23 years old Audrey. A few hundred protesters took to the streets of St. Louis, chanting "My body, my choice". Missouri became the first state to ban abortions after the Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade, the 50 years old decision that was guarantying women the right to an abortion in the country.
