Thousands of pro-abortion rights activists gathered in front of the Texas Capitol Building on Monday to protest new abortion legislation.

If the abortion legislation passes, only five of the 42 abortion clinics in Texas will remain open.

- Thousands made it to the Women's March on Washington on Saturday to stand up for women's rights and protest Donald Trump.
- Donald Trump lied about the size of the crowd at his inauguration while speaking to the CIA on Saturday, his first full day as president.
- Trump's spokesman held a press conference on Saturday to blame grass coverings for "minimizing" the crowd at the inauguration 🤔
- "We shall overcomb." People across America got creative and made some pretty epic signs for the Women's March 🎨👭
