The Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade

Since today is the 39th anniversary of a woman having a right to privacy and to her own body, I am not going to make this a long post. Today is the day to celebrate our reproductive rights, but it is also the day to continue to fight for what we got 39 years ago.

Though most of America agrees with Roe vs. Wade, there are some politicians who want to reverse this progress. We have to fight those politicians with our activism, and of course, our vote. I am a member of Feminist Majority, and one of their slogans seem to be “Vote as if your life depends on it.” Well, as women, it does. Republicans and Conservative Blue Dog Democrats are waging this War on Women. We need to vote in good Progressive Democrats to take back Congress to finally end this war. This year can be the year the War on Women ends, with your vote.

To our Reproductive freedom, and the fight ahead to keep it,
