SCOTUS decision reverses extreme Texas Law against Abortion Rights


Today’s decision will allow all Texas clinics currently open to remain operational, paving the way for more clinics to reopen in the future. Moreover, the 5-3 decision sets a national precedent that will curtail how far all states can go to restrict abortion. By striking down HB2 — one of the most restrictive abortion policies in the country — the highest court in the land has brought us one step closer to ensuring the respect and compassion that women and their families deserve. Still, we have a long way to go to have real reproductive justice in the state of Texas and beyond.

This decision comes in the midst of all-out assault on access to reproductive care: 231 anti-abortion restrictions were enacted by states over the last four years; 396 anti-abortion bills were introduced in 2015 alone.
