35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade

We must not go back.

Read Sarah Weddington‘s, A Question of Choice.

Review what was said around the most recent March for Women’s Lives.

Listen to the stories of women who have had abortions on today’s Talk of the Nation on NPR.

We need to work on pregnancy prevention initiatives: give girls real hope that they’ll have successful lives and a reason to delay pregnancy, support comprehensive sex education, and more. Abortion should be rare — but it must be safe and legal.

Vote for candidates who support reproductive rights — the simple right of a woman to make her own health care decisions, with the advice of her physician and (one hopes) with the support of those close to her.

If we do nothing, we *can* go back. But we must not. Vote pro-choice.

I signed up for Blog for Choice Day

On Jan. 22, Roe v. Wade will have it’s 35th anniversary — 35 hard years to be sure.
