Below are excerpts. Read the entire article at The Washington Post.

As oral arguments were heard inside the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday, crowds of abortion rights supporters and opponents gathered beyond the building’s white pillars to bear witness to the most significant abortion case to reach the court in decades.

Some linked arms. Others chanted. Many held signs.


Nearby, Dee Kalman held a black sign with white letters that read, “I regret my abortion.”

She had five abortions in the 1970s, she said. “I didn’t want them, but I was too young to figure that out,” said Kalman, 64, who lives in Northern Virginia.

Next to her, Nancy Tanner, 64, also carried a sign and a story. Her abortion was in 1984 at a D.C. Planned Parenthood facility. She said she is affiliated with the Silent No More awareness campaign, which has collected the stories of 17,000 women who have regrets, some who suffered infections and hysterectomies as a result of their abortions.

“I think common-sense minimum standards are really important,” Tanner said. “This is not about closing clinics at all.” She said it’s about making sure clinics are clean and have halls big enough to support a gurney should anything go wrong during a procedure.
