You Can Become Part of the Conversation
CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—January 18, 2017
By: Edwin C. Yohnka, Executive Director ACLU of Illinois
January 2018 marks the 45th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Roe v. Wade – a decision that freed women across the United States to make the most important decision in life: if and when to become a parent. In the four-plus decades since the court issued its decision, we have seen two things happen. Women have advanced in our society – in business and industry, education, and in a host of other spheres. And, we have seen anti-abortion advocates conspire and scheme to undermine this fundamental right.
What have we learned during the past 45 years, and what is the current state of reproductive freedom in the United States and here in Illinois?
Get answers to these and other questions by joining me for a phone conversation on Thursday, February 1 with my colleague, Lorie Chaiten, director of the ACLU of Illinois Women and Reproductive Rights Project. RSVP today!
Participants will receive a call from Stones Phones, our communication technology partner at the start of the event. When you answer the call, you will be connected to the tele-town hall. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions to a moderator during the call by using the touchtone keypad on your phone.
We hope you are able to join us for this celebration of 45 years under Roe and a look at our work ahead.
