Forty years later, the same damn fight

Next Tuesday will mark 40 years since Roe v. Wade, and yet, access to safe abortions is majorly limited.  Women's rights in the US are being chipped away at daily, little by little, state by state, with no safety net in sight.  I'm honestly scared to see what happens with the abortion debate over the next 40 years.  If we continue on the current trajectory... I don't even want to imagine.  I'm going to keep fighting for my rights.  Are you?

Here are what other people are saying 40 years after Roe v Wade:

PS totally frustrated that when researching events and articles for this post, the anti-abortion movement has a FAR greater amount of content online (as least in a google search) than the pro-choice movement.  Arg!!!
