The Supreme Court this week delivered its strongest affirmation of a women's right to abortion in years. By a margin of 5-3, it struck down two key provisions of a Texas law restricting the procedure.

"Ruth Bader Ginsberg is like a superhero today," says Jeffrey Hons, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood South Texas, to the applause of the crowd.
