Roe v. Wade Celebration to be held at NM Capitol Rotunda

The Santa Fe chapter of NOW (National Organization for Women) rides the momentum of the Women’s March on Washington by hosting a celebration of Roe v. Wade decision in the NM Capitol Rotunda. On Tuesday, February 7 from 10am -11am supporters of a woman’s right to decide her reproductive health will gather to honor the 44th anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling. The January 22, 1973 United States Supreme Court ruling that ensures a woman’s right to obtain a safe and legal abortion from a health care provider is under threat like never before, in state houses across the national and in Washington. Within the first week of his tenure, the 45th President of the United States has threatened Planned Parenthood with defunding. He also waved his pen and reinstated the Global Gag Rule that blocks U.S. aid to international organizations that perform or even talk about abortion.
