33 years of women’s constitutional rights being upheld

Today marks the 33rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade

In 1973, women won control of their reproductive rights when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Roe v. Wade that women have a right to choose as part of their constitutional right to privacy, to terminate a pregnancy during its first two trimesters. Only during the last trimester, when the fetus can survive outside the womb, would states be permitted to regulate abortion of a healthy pregnancy.

The Supreme Court is just a step away of overturning this decision, however. Since Bush nominated conservative hardliner Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court, women’s rights are in jeopardy more than ever.
