presidential elections of july fourth and as i said the march were peaceful and the demonstrators at dispersing con by announcing a new. meeting the next friday. now the only abortion clinic in the u. s. state of missouri is to stay open for at least a few more days. a judge granted a temporary restraining order keeping the center open until tuesday. it is that a brief victory for women's rights campaigners you've been baffling to prevent this is louise clinic shutting its doors permanently for midnight local time tonight. had it closed is there a way to become the first american state without legal abortion services. fifty is eric okay has the latest. a temporary victory for pro choice activists in the us state of missouri. state judge has given missouri's last abortion clinic more time to resolve a conflict with the state's health department. the license of the planned parenthood clinic in saint louis
3:38 pm
shall not expire and shall remain in effect until a ruling onon petitioner's request for preliminary injunction. the ruling which came just hours before planned parenthood license was supposed to expire means missouri's soul abortion clinic can continue providing the procedure. at least for now. the next hearing on the matter set for june fourth. this comes after the state refused to renew the clinics abortion license asserting that had violated regulations. planned parenthood for its part says the regulations in question are a series of arbitrary rules that often change including the size of clinic doors. the nonprofit organization accuses state officials most notably republican governor mike parson of simply attempting to restrict the right to abortion. ariens are out in the streets behind us today. making their voices heard in opposition to this weapon nice politicized process because people should havave access to safe legal abortion in this state.
3:39 pm
juries abortion clinics have shut down one after the other due to restrictive regulations. if the saint louis clinic in question shuts down missouri would be the first state with no abortion facilities in forty five years since the supreme court ruled access to abortion it was a fundamental right. governor mike parson recently signed a bill banning the procedure beyond eight weeks of pregnancy. missouri is one of more than a dozen states currently commenting access to the procedure. their goal to take the case back to the supreme court where anti abortion activists hope the two new conservative judges will tip the decision on the matter in their favor. let's talk more than about that abortion issue inn thehe united states not spring enough france was because she's a lecture in american studies at the university of to lose here in france and she joins us now a good evening to you. thanks so much for talking to us up on the program. first of all this is then a temporary reprieve for abortion activists in missouri at today but across america we've seen -- restrictions coming in this year in nine states it's been an
3:40 pm
issue that seems to have fallen a little bit away from public consciousness for a while now so why are we saying all these cases. apapparelyly suddenly y reimagi. well it was out of sigight outuf mimind for a lot of fufun. of full of americans a lot of the transit was and discussed mumuch for e example during the twtwenty sixteen presisidential campaigngn but makee no mistake that these issue has always been the number one priority. for a large part of the republican base and for probably constructed just which leads us to the situation today -- in twenty sixteen trump in particular galt the blind allegiance of g. venture legal right which is a huge. core of the republican party special during the primaries. my promising to a point extremely conservativive and pro lilife judges which indeed in hs first two years in power by nominating gore section. twenty seventeen and canada twenty eighteen which means that for the first time as your
3:41 pm
correspondenent explained since the nineteen seventies there's a clear five vote majority on the supreme court against abortion rights. and the point of full these so apparently certain education at a local level is to find one case which could make its way. up all the way to the supreme court to finally have these abortion armageddon if you will in washington -- hopefully for those activists very soon. so we're talking about a possibility that roe v. wade could actually be over time do you think that that is it is likely. first movie when is already half dead because i was -- just to re explained of the day even if on paper abortion remains a constitutional right for now. in practice loan of american women cannot have access to abortion because it describes city off. abortion clinics missouri is one of six states right now with
3:42 pm
only one abortion clinic in the whole state -- and then some of those american states are as big as european countries so. even now the situation is dire in particular for isolated women who live far away from. urban centers like st louis in missouri or women for women women of color who -- immigrant women who don't have a car and as a result are unable to drive to the nearest abortion clinic which could be for five hours. away so it's a it meets beyonond row now we were even if roe war were to collapse which is. very likely -- for a lot of women and forty chile the situation wouldn't change much because the rule was already disappeared in a life of millions of american women. i just finally before we let you go does talk about the news from missouri today not campapaign aa calling that -- a victory but do you think -- by tuesday at this will have been over time and we will be looking at the fast you estate to have no abortions
3:43 pm
clinics available [inaudible] it's possible. and golly what happened a victory. coming from pro choice groups. proves how much the debate has shifted. because this is a terrible victory it's really saving what he's already shameful -- so it's really too it's a very good it is tradition that the situation of pro choice groups. is is is very weak right now dot pro life groups and brawley features are on the offensive. however momentum the end of the line of defense behind which pro choice activists hi. eight keeps receding. up all the time the and even a victory next tuesday would be a very very short term reprieve that's for sure.
