With a smear campaign and a Congressional vote to defund Planned Parenthood, it’s hard to believe that the landmark Supreme Court decision Roe v. Wade happened almost half a century ago, today.
Forty-three years ago, the Supreme Court upheld a woman’s right to choose. But today that right and other reproductive rights, including access to birth control, are still being challenged. What’s worse, the reproductive rights of the most vulnerable women are the most at risk. It’s this lack of equity, health, and rights that are putting women on the frontline of environmental challenges, too.
