FM Launches to Save Abortion Rights

The Feminist Majority announces a new website and online campaign to protect abortion rights in the U.S.: The possible retirement of two Supreme Court Justices this summer could allow anti-abortion President George W. Bush to pack the court with anti-abortion Justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that legalized abortion in all 50 states. will work to prevent the return to the days of back-alley abortions when thousands of women needlessly died. Million4Roe will gather a million petitions directed at Senate leadership, urging them to lead a filibuster against any Supreme Court nominee who refuses to support Roe v. Wade. Users can win prizes by joining a celebrity team online and signing up friends, the first two of which are led by United Farm Workers co-founder Dolores Huerta and television “X-Files” star Gillian Anderson.
