Missouri becomes first US state to ban abortion after Supreme Court ruling: attorney general


Missouri's attorney general Eric Schmitt announces that his state will be the first "to effectively end abortion" in the United States, after the conservative-dominated Supreme Court overturned the landmark 1973 "Roe v. Wade" decision that enshrined a woman's right to an abortion, saying that individual states can now permit or restrict the procedure themselves. "I pledge to continue to fight for our most fundamental right: the right to life," Schmitt says in a video statement posted to social media. SOUNDBITE
