Day is a mark of reproductive freedom
DENVER – In honor of the landmark Jan. 22, 1973 U.S. Supreme Court case granting a woman’s right to privacy when making personal health care decisions including the constitutional right to an abortion, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains will host an open house as its Boulder health center on Jan. 14.
“The 1973 Roe v. Wade decision allowed women to participate fully and equally in society,” said Vicki Cowart, CEO and President of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. “Despite enduring years of attacks, this monumental decision still stands as the law of the land and remains one of the most politically significant events in Supreme Court history. PPRM is proud to celebrate this anniversary symbolically and figuratively – many women rely on Roe to protect their health.”
WHAT: A celebration of the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade: an open house with light appetizers hosted by Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.
WHEN: Jan.14, 2010
WHERE: Boulder Planned Parenthood health center
2525 Arapahoe Avenue, Suite 200
Boulder, CO 80302
Members of the press do not need to RSVP.
Through a visual art display, pro-choice activists attending the event will have the opportunity to express personal anecdotes, statements, experiences or sentiments about why preserving the legal decision of Roe is important to them. Dubbed the “Roe remembrance wall” this exhibit will depict real expressions of the pro-choice movement before and after Roe.
