Women's Equality - Women's Lives

Blog for Choice Day - January 22, 2007

Today is the 34th anniversary of Roe v Wade, the landmark US Supreme Court decision giving women the right to safe and legal abortion.

Over the years, religious right groups have sought to overturn Roe -- but they have not been successful. What they have done, however, is to weaken the original intent of Roe.

Young women and poor women often don't have access to safe and legal abortion. Neither do some women in the military. We must continue to work not just to hold the line, but to reclaim ground lost.

Contact your Congress member and State legislator and make your voice heard.
