June 27th 2016 has turned into a watershed day for women and the progressive movement in America, and this tweet says it all:
CNN.com:Turned in MSNBC for #hb2 ruling and now I'm watching Clinton and Warren speak with my daughters. Is today a dream? pic.twitter.com/POUsCVVbmm— Kate Spencer (@katespencer) June 27, 2016
In a dramatic ruling, the Supreme Court on Monday threw out a Texas abortion access law in a victory to supporters of abortion rights who argued it would have shuttered all but a handful of clinics in the state.
The 5-3 ruling is the most significant decision from the Supreme Court on abortion in two decades and could serve to deter other states from passing so-called "clinic shutdown" laws.
Shortly after the ruling, Clinton and Warren arrived together on stage in Cincinnati to deafening applause from the overflowing crowd. What was most striking to me was Elizabeth's undeniable and infectious enthusiasm in giving her endorsement. It's clear that she was absolutely over the moon to finally be standing next to Hillary and give her complete support. And of course, she once again decimated the Donald like no one else can.
A couple of things have changed as a result: One, the chances of a Clinton/Warren ticket just shot way up...rightly so. And two, Bernie who?Warren has crowd roaring, stops mid-way through her speech for a solid min to turn from the podium toward Clinton and clap along w audience.— Ruby Cramer (@rubycramer) June 27, 2016
Watch the full rally above and feel good about today...because one major battle was won and another huge victory just got closer to reality this November.
SCOTUS's decision is a victory for women in Texas and across America. Safe abortion should be a right—not just on paper, but in reality. -H— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) June 27, 2016
