Only a fraction of the demonstrators who poured out after the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision on Friday returned for a third day of protests outside the court in Washington. 

With temperatures climbing to more than 90F (32C) on Sunday, a hard core of demonstrators sang and chanted, pledging to continue their vigil until action was taken to restore abortion rights voided by the court’s majority. There wasn’t much evidence of organizations such as Planned Parenthood and religious faiths that coordinated demonstrations, for and against choice, in the wake of the decision.
