Roe v. Wade: Today and for Generations to Come


Today marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the landmark Supreme Court decision that affirmed a woman’s right to a safe and legal abortion. As we celebrate this historic anniversary, we must also acknowledge that women face an unprecedented rise of state-level restrictions on reproductive health care that undermine this historic advance for women.

Mark this important anniversary with us by ensuring the rights granted by Roe v. Wade are preserved for generations of women to come. Tell your state policymakers to end the attacks on access to reproductive health care and to ensure that the rights affirmed by Roe v. Wade are around for generations.

State legislators are pulling out all the stops to chip away at access to the reproductive health care made possible by Roe. Whether it’s by passing laws to prevent women from buying health insurance to cover abortion, defunding Planned Parenthood, or requiring those seeking an abortion to undergo an unnecessary and invasive ultrasound, they all have the same purpose: making it more difficult to get and afford the critical reproductive health services we need. In fact, in the last two years we’ve experienced the highest number of state-level attacks on women’s reproductive health ever.

On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, it’s up to us to stop politicians from pushing us back to the days before Roe, when abortion was illegal. Help us make sure these rights are around for generations to come.
Thank you for all you do to protect women’s ability to get and afford abortion care.
Sincerely,

 

Judy Waxman

P.S. The National Women’s Law Center, as the leader of the This Is Personal campaign, asked people across the country to post pictures of their shoes on Tumblr and tell us how no one knows what it’s like to walk in our shoes — and no one should try to make our reproductive health decisions for us.
