SCOTUS: “Protesters Celebrate as Supreme Court Rejects Texas Abortion Law” / RT America ☮

Hundreds of pro-choice supporters celebrated outside the US Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., Monday, following the court’s decision to overturn restrictions against access to abortion in Texas. 

The crowd cheered, sang and danced as the ruling was announced. Several anti-abortion activists were also present at the site. The court voted 5 to 3 against the Texas legislation. 

The Texas law was adopted by the state back in 2013, and could have reduced the number of abortion clinics by a factor of four if fully implemented. Monday’s ruling is likely to prevent similar measures from being introduced in other states.
