Think Progress posted the story “Forty-Two Years After Roe v. Wade, The Sad State Of Abortion Rights In America”.
Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion throughout the country, marks its 42nd birthday on Thursday. But for women across the United States, it’s a somewhat complicated anniversary.
“On the one hand, it’s a time to reflect on an important historical moment. But it’s also a time to reflect on what is ultimately an unfulfilled promise,” Kimberly Inez McGuire, the director of public affairs for the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, told ThinkProgress. “In the last couple of years, we have seen an absolute barrage of policies on a state level that are, right now, denying women that right every single day.”
