Remembering Roe v. Wade

January 22nd, 2008     by Stacey May Fowles     Comments

Today is the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, a United States Supreme Court case that resulted in a landmark decision that abortions are permissible based on a woman’s choice. NARAL Pro-Choice America has asked bloggers to participate in Blog for Choice Day 2008 and answer this year’s question of “Why it’s important to vote pro-choice.” Bloggers across the feminist blogosphere are writing great posts about why they think it’s important to vote pro-choice. In fact, the need to voice the importance of the decision seems greater than ever. Why do you think it’s important to vote pro-choice? Let us know in the comments section.

Don’t forget, January 28th marks the 20th anniversary of R. v. Morgenthaler, the Canadian Supreme Court decision that declared it unconstitutional to force a woman to carry a fetus to term. There will be events across Canada commemorating the day and we’ll keep you posted.
