43rd Anniversary of Roe v Wade

43rd Anniversary of Roe v Wade

January 22, 2016 is the 43rd anniversary of the Roe v Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case that made abortion safe and legal in the United States.

On the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the stakes for women’s access to safe, legal abortion are higher than ever, with politicians threatening to further restrict access to abortion and the U.S. Supreme Court soon hearing the biggest abortion case in decades. On this occasion, we are reminded of what life was like for women before safe and legal abortion–and what could again become a reality for many women across the country if politicians continue to take women’s health backwards.

Join us for Roe v Wade Events in your community that celebrate this milestone for women’s reproductive rights:
