U.S. Supreme Court considers taking up abortion providers’ challenge to Texas’ near-total ban on the procedure

Protestors joined several Democratic lawmakers outside of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C., on May 21, 2019, to show their opposition to the recent abortion ban implemented by several states.
