Today the Supreme Court struck down a Texas law called HB2, which heavily restricted abortion providers in the state. Justices cited that the law created an "undue burden" on women as reasoning for the decision. The votes were 5-3 in the case of Whole Woman's Health v. Hellerstedt.
HB2 mandated required counseling and waiting times before women could get abortions. The decision should have a major impact on restrictive laws in other states like Florida and Mississippi, which have similarly oppressive regulations.
Celebrities and politicians alike have taken to the Internet to share their thoughts on the landmark ruling.
Hillary Clinton tweeted:
