Dispatch: Mississippi’s last abortion clinic sounds the alarm as it closes its doors

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Dispatch: Mississippi’s last abortion clinic sounds the alarm as it closes its doors” – below is their description.

In the final hours that abortion remained legal in Mississippi, a steady stream of cars pulled up at the state’s only clinic, some with license plates from as far afield as Texas.

For many of the women seeking entry on Wednesday, this was a last-ditch effort to terminate unwanted pregnancies before Mississippi joins the abortion “desert” taking shape across southern America.

But getting in to the clinic in Jackson is difficult. An angry mob waits outside, determined to use their bodies to block anyone from making their appointment.

One pro-life protester, John Busby, 37, quotes the Bible as he warns visitors they risk eternal damnation. Some of the women look frantic.

A wall of volunteers in rainbow-coloured jackets gathers around their cars to escort them inside, bellowing into megaphones in the hope of drowning out Mr Busby and his peers.
