Women protested across the country–including in the Twin Cities–over the weekend–against the new anti-abortion law in Texas.  U-S Senator Tina Smith says:

“The Texas case is just a travesty, the case throws out nearly 50 years of precedent and basically allows vigilantes the right to deny women their constitutional rights.”

Texas’ new law banning abortions beyond six weeks went into effect last month–and Mississippi is looking to ban abortions after 15 weeks, with more states potentially to follow. This year’s annual Women’s March was organized in more than 600 cities.
