WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand is planning to hold a reproductive rights town hall in St. Louis, home of Missouri's last remaining abortion clinic.
A new state law bans most abortions at the eighth week of pregnancy. But the restrictions have yet to take effect and have been challenged in federal court.
The New York senator has made defending women's rights the bedrock of her presidential bid. Gillibrand's campaign says the town hall will be held Sunday, and she's also meeting privately with providers and patients.
