On May 12, thousands of students across the country burst out of their class rooms and took to the streets  in protest, responding to a call from Rise Up 4 Abortion Rights. From coast to coast, in large cities and small towns they staged angry, defiant demonstrations. In this slider is a small sample that provides a glimpse of the breadth of those actions.
