Hundreds of abortion rights supporters rally outside the Supreme Court Wednesday.
The justices are hearing a case out of Texas, where abortion providers are challenging a state law they call “too restrictive.” They say it impedes a woman’s constitutional right obtain an abortion.
Lawyers for the lone star state contend the law is meant to protect women’s health.
It requires doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, and clinics to meet standards for outpatient or ambulatory surgical centers.
This is the biggest abortions-rights case before the high court in nearly 25 years.
A decision is expected by late June.
