Wendy Davis: 'Absolutely overjoyed' by SCOTUS ruling

Former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis said Monday she was "absolutely overjoyed" by the Supreme Court's ruling that struck down a Texas abortion access law.

Davis, a Democrat who earned national attention with her 11-hour filibuster of the bill in 2013, told CNN's Pamela Brown that the court's ruling was "good news for women in Texas and across the country."

"We were absolutely overjoyed because the Court recognized that this law was a sham, that the argument that this was somehow going to protect women's health was absolutely disingenuous," Davis said. "They saw right through it."
