Judge considering Missouri abortion clinic license case
A judge is deciding whether to ensure Missouri's only abortion clinic can keep its license past Friday, the latest development in a decades-long push by abortion opponents to get states to enact strict rules on the procedure.Like many states, Missouri over the years enacted a series of regulations, ranging from waiting periods before women can receive abortions to rules on the width of clinic doors.

Police responding to a 911 call reporting a fall found Martin's body outside the garage near Busch Stadium shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday. Court documents cited by the Post-Dispatch stated that Jenkins was "agitated and appeared to be intoxicated" when officers found him straddling Martin's body.
According to the documents, Jenkins told investigators that he and Martin -- also an Illinois corrections officer -- had attended Saturday's baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs with some co-workers. Jenkins said that the couple had argued during the game, but denied that they had a physical confrontation.
Authorities say police found Martin's cellphone on the seventh floor of the garage with the video camera recording. When officers reviewed footage shot on the phone, they saw Martin "pointing the camera toward herself," according to St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Detective Mark West. "She then turned the camera toward this defendant and he was shown on camera. They were arguing."
