40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

WHWH latest email:

January 22, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade the U.S. Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion.  As it stands now, women seeking abortion care must walk through crowds of protestors; abortion providers fear for their safety; states are passing laws to make women seeking abortions go through waiting periods, obtain parental or judicial permission, or view photos of aborted fetuses; politicians vote against women's reproductive rights.

For a list of Roe v Wade events in the U.S. see Women's Health in Women's Hands latest email.  Please let us know any and all plans to commemorate this anniversary - we will include your event in this blog.
