Today is the 28th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal in all 50 states. Despite 28 years of safe and legal abortion access, today a woman’s right to choose is more vulnerable than ever. The threat comes with the inauguration of an anti-choice President, a majority of both houses of Congress is anti-choice, and the potential for an extremist anti-choice Attorney General and Supreme Court.
Today, while abortion rights activists celebrate the landmark decision of Roe v. Wade, opponents to choice are working to strip all women of the right to control their bodies. Bush has nominated anti-abortion extremist John Ashcroft for US Attorney Generala position responsible for enforcing the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act, which protects reproductive health clinic workers, doctors, and patients from anti-abortion violence.
