U.S. Supreme Court, Abortion Rights

This pro-choice activist says "Stay the Hellerstedt Out of my body". Demonstrators assembled in front of the U.S. Supreme Court steps in Washington D.C. on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 as the Court heard oral arguments in the Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt case. This case involved a Texas law requiring that clinic doctors have admitting privileges at local hospitals and that clinics upgrade their facilities to standards similar to hospitals. If the law is allowed to go into effect it could effectively shut down all but about 10 clinics in the state. It is the first major controversial case the court has handled since the death last month of Justice Antonin Scalia. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
