Days of activists trying to tell women the "good places" to go, agitating in state legislatures to change the laws that made abortion criminal — and days of researching the possibility of working within legal channels to wipe out anti-abortion statutes.

Our dream of personal reproductive choice came true.

However, shortly after the decision, opponents organized to turn back the clock, to make personal choices into government decisions once again.

We’ve had to defend our personal liberties ever since.

Our goal is to provide information about this important case and become a resource for those who believe that indeed – choice does matter.

January 22, 1973 is a day to remember.

That’s when Roe v. Wade was decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The days before abortion was legal are seared into our memories.  Days of women seeking abortions in back alleys from unscrupulous people — women being rushed to hospital emergency rooms — women with money leaving the country to find reputable, safe services.  Days of doctors and other health professionals insisting that the law had to be changed so that the lives and fertility of women could be saved.
