40 Years of Choice – How Women's Voices Won and Will Preserve Roe v. Wade

January 22, 2013 marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. The ACLU of Washington is cosponsoring an event organized by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest that features Sarah Weddington – the attorney who successfully argued the Roe v. Wade case at the age of 27! – in commemorating four decades of women’s reproductive freedom. We’ll hear personal stories of life before Roe v. Wade, discuss restrictions to abortion access in recent years, and share our plans to ensure women—not politicians—continue to make their own medical decisions in the future. Doors open at 6:30pm.
