Civics, Community

January 22, 2013, marks the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States. In a talk subtitled, “How Women’s Voices Won and Will Preserve Roe v. Wade,” Sarah Weddington—the attorney who argued Roe v. Wade before the Supreme Court at the age of 27—commemorates four decades of women’s reproductive freedom. Weddington, author of A Question of Choice, shares stories of life before Roe v. Wade, discusses the challenges and attacks that abortion rights have faced in recent years, and looks ahead to the next 40 years of reproductive choice in America. Presented by Planned Parenthood.
Admission is free, but registration is required at www.ppgnw.org/roe40. Great Hall; enter on Eighth Avenue.

    This was an amazing evening! Thank you so much for making this opportunity available to the public!
    I was wondering if it was recorded and if that would be available to share with those who did not attend?

    Thanks again!

      I’m afraid not. Since this was a production from an outside organization (Planned Parenthood) we do not have an archive recording.
