Ms. Magazine posted the story “On the 42nd Anniversary of Roe, Time to Listen to Women Born After It”.
Today marks 42 years since abortion was made legal in all 50 states. Since then, anti-choice politicians have worked endlessly to undermine that decision and make abortion less attainable. Young people are at our most vulnerable when it comes to an unplanned pregnancy, and we are once again concerned that our rights might disappear.
This isn’t just the anniversary of Roe v Wade: This is also the start of a new election cycle, one already overflowing with presidential candidates who want to restrict our reproductive health decisions. But candidates need to remember that we—voters ages 18-29—can make a huge difference in the next election.
