40th Anniversary of Roe v Wade
Talk about a backlash! During the last election cycle we saw State after State try to completely outlaw abortion clinics in their states, declare a foetus less than 2 minutes old a person with property rights, require state-mandated "rape" with a probe of all women seeking an abortion, eliminate many forms of birth control, celebrate the murder of Dr. Tiller who performed legal abortions, and on and on and on.
Here on the anniversary of Roe v Wade (passed 40 years ago), the latest poll of Americans yields these latest results:
70% of America believes Roe v Wade (legalizing abortion) should NOT be overturned.
54% believes abortion should be an available option in all or most cases.
Looks like the extremism of the Right-wingers has back-fired on them!
But now we have work to do. Got to un-do all those outrageous anti-choice laws a half of dozen states have passed--including my own state of Kansas. But I'm happy to report that despite the anti-abortion clinic laws Kansas passed and all the death threats and other threats directed at the new physician that intends to re-open murdered Dr. Tiller's practice, Kansas pro-choicers are working hard to get abortion services returned to the state of Kansas--and it looks like we may win this battle!
Celebrate Pro-Choice America today on the 40th Anniversary of Roe v Wade!
