"News. I'm Steve Inskeep. And I may tell Martin today could be the last day for the only clinic in Missouri that provides abortions, the clinic is in Saint Louis in. It's run by Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has filed suit to try to keep the doors open. If it closes, Missouri would be the first state to eliminate any legal abortion access since the procedure was legalized more than forty years ago. We've got NPR Sarah mccamman with us as well as Joe Manus from Saint Louis public radio. Thanks to both of you for being here this morning. Good morning. Thank you. Joy wanna start with you. Can you just explain first off why this clinic is about to close? Well, they're license expires at midnight tonight. And the, they're in a dispute with the state health department, over some interviews at the state house department wants to do with some contract physicians who have helped Planned Parenthood provide abortion services, they say they have no power to require those physicians to talk to the state. They say the state actually is using this as an excuse to force to closure of the clinic, because they see this as the quickest way to do it in those, clinicians, aren't sitting for those interviews because the fear at some legal action could be taken against them. Right. Correct. I mean, the Planned Parenthood is contending that the state has not been fourth. Coming in exactly what they want. What information that they say they need or an alleged patient complaint that the governor made reference to at a press conference earlier this week. They say this is all an excuse to do the desired effect of closing the clinic, there's been battles over the Planned Parenthood clinic for decades, the difference now is that there is a governor who agrees with the Republican leaders in general assembly who have been trying for years to close this clinic theres abortion opponents have been targeting the clinic for since the late seventies. So what would this mean for the women of Missouri with the clinic closes? Wow. At means that if you live on the Kansas side of the state things, probably won't change that much because they already have to go across the. Border into Kansas, to where the Kansas City, Planned Parenthood, actually, has their clinic on the Saint Louis side are basically eastern part of the state. They'll have to go across the river into Illinois. There's hope clinic, which is out long-standing abortion provider is just a few miles away in granite city, and they'll have to do that. Now, the state law that the general semblance pass at the governor signed just a few days ago, attempts to even make that illegal. If it goes into effect, there's actually two fights going on. There's one over the license requirements and then there's one over the state law that the governor just signed days ago. So I wanna bring in Serra mccamman into this conversation. You've been talking to people on both sides of this, right? Abortion rights advocates are concerned. About this. What are groups who are opposed to abortion, right saying, well, of course, opponents of abortion rights generally see abortion has a moral evil. These is taking a human life, so they're certainly not morning. The potential end of abortion services for all intents and purposes in Missouri. At the same time, a lot of the focus has been on this claim from the state that this isn't about how enforcing health regulations. Of course, as we heard Planned Parenthood says they've done everything within their control to abide by the rules. And they say the state keeps moving the goalposts in an effort to shut them down. But when you talk to anti-bush and rights groups like the season be Anthony list. I heard from them this week. The president issued a statement saying that closing the clinic would be good news for women's health and safety and misery. And of course, Republican governor Mike person has said that this isn't political that, it's quote, not an issue about the pro-life issue at all, but again, about health and safety. So that is largely the message Rachel, but at the same time anti-abortion rights groups, and the governor certainly have made no secret of the fact that they oppose abortion rights and would like to see abortions be more difficult or impossible to get in most cases and Sarah, I mean, other states are doing this to tightening laws around abortion, and it's not just random. It's not a coincidence, that this is happening at the same time as it. Right. I just yesterday Louisiana governor John Bel Edwards signed us. Six-week bands similar to those. We've seen in several other states that's a little bit different because he's a democrat. He's mostly been signed by Republican governors, but doctors who violate that law could lose their license or face prison time. And like the others that law has not yet taken a fact, but it has a provision written into it. That keeps it from taking effect until a similar law in Mississippi is litigated that one has been held up by a federal judge so far, but this is the culmination of years of activism by anti abortion rights groups at all levels of government, and in many ways this has been catalyzed by the appointment of Justice. Brad to the supreme court, and Sarah mccamman and Joe mantis of Saint Louis public radio. Thanks to both thinking..

"Trump, Sarah mccamman, NPR news, Charleston. NPR news. It's Cutie news. I'm Tara Siler. California's two US senators are denouncing the FBI report looking into sexual assault allegations against supreme court nominee. Judge Brad Kavanagh? The FBI briefs Senator today after interviewing nine people senators Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris called the report incomplete cuties senior politics editor Scott Shafer joins us to talk about this and other political developments, and Scott, what are the main concerns Feinstein and Harris have with this report. Well, this is really an echo of the concerns. They've had all along terra. You may recall during the initial hearing with Brad Kavanagh democrat said that the White House was withholding key documents, thousands of different documents, and basically Republicans hold all cards here. They obviously are in the White House they control congress. And so they're really at the mercy of Republicans, and what they're saying now with this FBI investigation, which was added on after last week's hearing is that it's incomplete that it wasn't thorough that it was controlled and limited by the Trump White House. And despite what the GOP is saying through statements and tweets that this investigation shows no hint of misconduct by Kevin other saying that's not true. But here's the catch. They can't release any details because it's all confidential, right? And now Senate leader Mitch McConnell says he's going to hold a vote on Kavanagh's confirmation this week. How's it all shaping up now? Well, as you said he is started the ball rolling is going to be a procedural vote known as cloture tomorrow Friday. And then there could be a full Senate vote on the floor as soon as Saturday. It's not entirely clear that Republicans have the votes there are four key senators, three Republicans and one democrat who have yet to say how they're going to vote, but it certainly is looking more and more like they do have the votes, even if it has to be a fifty fifty with a tie broken by vice president Pence, they're certainly determined to get this through so I wanna pivot here to state politics. There's a new poll conducted in congressional swing districts where. Democrats are hoping to take seats now held by Republicans. How are things looking for those districts well, in general, they look pretty good for Democrats in this sense in district where a President Trump is unpopular, which is at least half of those districts of the Democrats are either ahead or basically tied in six of those districts. There are two seats were Democrats are clearly ahead. One is the district. Now held by Darrell Issa and democrat. Mike Levin is way ahead their head of the Republican and then in the forty fifth district in Orange County Mimi Walters, the Republican is behind Katie porter are UC Irvine lawyer is well ahead there and then the rest of these races mostly are almost within the margin of error. So it really is gonna come down to turn out which get out the vote operations our best which voters are most motivated and any sense of how Kevin on this controversy might play out in the midterms. Well, the conventional wisdom is that if cavenaugh is confirmed it is going to mobilize Democrats, especially women. And if he is rejected it's going to mobilize Republicans, especially evangelical Christians, it really depends on how it turns out. But you know, that's just conventional wisdom Taryn often that's wrong. So Scott, you're the host of political breakdown who's the guest this week. Well, governor Gavin Newsom, he's of course, the democrat running for governor MAURICE, and I talk with him about as we do on political breakdown. We don't grill people about policy, but really who they are as people how they got to be where they are what their passions. Are we talking to him about his dyslexia that he was diagnosed with as a kid how it affected him then and how he deals with it now as an adult, and of course, all this is a prelude to Monday when we've got new and Republican John Cox coming in here at ten AM for a big debate in a conversation with me and the two of them. Okay. Looking forward to that senior politics editor, Scott Shafer. And I'm Tara Siler committee news, dear.
