37th Roe Anniversary

On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision on Roe v. Wade, legalizing abortion in the United States. Women's health advocates celebrated the end of back-alley abortions and their tragic consequences.

 

 

Throughout the month of January, PPNNE is commemorating this anniversary with a number of events. We hope you'll join us!
