On March 2nd, The Supreme Court of the United States heard oral arguments in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which would determine the constitutionality of HB2 and other TRAP laws. The case comes at a critical time, when clinics throughout the South are shutting down at a shocking rate; currently, Louisiana and Alabama are facing the closure of all but one of their clinics, and Mississippi’s last remaining clinic is only open by emergency court order. While arguments took place inside, outside over 2,000 reproductive justice activists gathered to call on SCOTUS to #StopTheSham and support safe access to abortion in Texas and nationwide.
