The 40th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade!

January 22, 2013

On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court made the landmark decision, extending the 14th Amendment to a woman’s decision to have an abortion. Forty years later, the debate over abortion still wages on. 

Sarah Erdreich, author of Generation Roe: Inside the Future of the Pro-Choice Movementout in March, was featured in OpEdNews. In her article “The Next Forty Years“, Erdreich tells readers:

“Thanks to Roe  and Doe v. Bolton, which also turns forty on January 22, an entire generation of women have grown up knowing that abortion is a legal medical procedure [...] I am one of those women. So is my sister and my sister-in-law, my cousins and friends and colleagues. And so are the dozens of activists, providers, attorneys, and students that I have interviewed over the past four years for my book on the future of the pro-choice movement. I have been fortunate to spend so many hours talking with women–and men–whose passion, intelligence, and determination fills me with hope that legal abortion will be a right that my daughter’s generation will know, too.”
