Today is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that made abortion legal (and safe) in this country. And, though there have been some setbacks, we made it through the Bush years. Time for new leadership and a revised Supreme Court composed of judges who make intelligent decisions based on what is best for all Americans.
If you don't know much about this case or what is happening with reproductive rights today, I would highly encourage you to visit these sites. This is also a good chance to thank these organizations who are fighting to protect our rights to make safe and informed decisions about our own bodies:
Center for Reproductive Rights
The Physicians for Reproductive Choice are giving us the chance to thank doctors who were brave enough to perform safe sterile abortions pre-Roe. These are the heroes who risked their own lives to help save many women from life-threatening back alley abortions. Click here to send your support.
