Sunday, January 22nd marks the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that made it legal for a woman to choose an abortion. Yet, despite the fact that abortion is a legal and safe medical procedure, and has been for the better part of four decades, there still exists those people who seek to undermine that legal right.
In Pennsylvania and across the country, 2011 brought an unprecedented number of attacks on access to abortion care. Abortion access has never been more fragile than it is now. Lawmakers have made it their priority to limit access to abortion services, and we need to make sure they know that we’re watching and we’ve had enough.
Help us commemorate the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, while also sending the message to our legislators and communities that abortion in Pennsylvania needs to stay safe and legal. Join us in Philadelphia from 12-1p at Broad & Walnut Streets for a Roe v. Wade celebration visibility event! Not in Philadelphia? Check out the other events around the state to find one near you or organize your own using our handy toolkit! Also, for those who can't attend but still want to participate stay tuned for info on how to participate in online activities that day.
See you on the 20th.
