Women, Celebrities, Politicians React to Supreme Court Striking Down Texas Abortion Law
Monday was one of the most historic days for women in American legislative history.
The Supreme Court struck down Texas legislation, HB2, restricting abortion rights in a 5-3 vote.
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton hailed the Supreme Court's decision on the Texas abortion law, writing on Twitter, "SCOTUS's decision is a victory for women in Texas and across America. Safe abortion should be a right — not just on paper, but in reality."
"The fight isn't over," she continued. "The next president has to protect women's health. Women won't be 'punished' for exercising their basic rights."
Clinton wasn't alone in celebrating Monday's step forward for women's rights and protections across the nation. Check out some reactions to the Supreme Court's progressive day below:
