January 22, 2011 will mark the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This landmark ruling, along with the earlier Griswold v. Connecticut, recognized a constitutional right to privacy and protected a woman's right to make reproductive decisions based on her own life, health, and conscience. Ensuring that women are trusted to make those decisions is a cause that stills needs our support all these years later.
People For the American Way has joined the Silver Ribbon Campaign to Trust Women. Along with our Silver Ribbon partners, we’re asking you to wear a silver ribbon during Trust Women Month – January 22 through February 22. And when you do, don’t forget to spread the word and take action.
From our friends at Silver Ribbon:
Since the recent election, the opponents of reproductive health care and women’s rights have claimed they speak for America. They do not.
It’s time to express the true voices of America.
It’s time to come together and show our strength.
We need to stand by each other and claim our rights to the legal health care to which we’re entitled.
Join the Silver Ribbon campaign to Trust Women, for Reproductive Rights and Justice.
