Police, abortion rights protesters clash in LA

STORY: The footage showed gas canisters exploding, violent clashes between police and protesters, and police detaining abortion rights activists.

The Supreme Court's decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization overturned the half-century-old Roe v. Wade precedent that recognized women’s constitutional right to abortion and returned the decision to states. Nearly half the states are considered certain or likely to ban abortion.

The ruling is expected to dramatically change life for millions of women in America and exacerbate growing tensions in a deeply polarized country.
