Happy Anniversary!

Forty years ago today the landmark decision in Roe v. Wade was made.  As an important landmark in the fight for women's reproductive rights, it's definitely something to celebrate!  And, despite the ongoing attacks women's health rights have faced from politicians, a recent Gallup poll shows that 53% of Americans still support the Roe v. Wade decision.  Halle-freaking-lujah.

What my man Obama has to say about the occasion:
“On the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care." 

And finally, click here for a really fantastic article from the General Board of Church and Society of the United Methodist Church (say that three times fast) about the continued fight for reproductive justice.
