Happy 35th Birthday Roe v. Wade [VIDEO]

Young people across the nation talk about what Roe v. Wade means to them.
This video made by Choice USA to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade decision. The Choice USA website says:
Since his first day in office over seven years ago, President Bush has actively set the stage to challenge and reverse Roe vs. Wade. He has placed radically anti-choice officials as heads of important health-based agencies, installed two anti-choice justices on the Supreme Court, reinstated the Global Gag Rule, proposed restrictions on contraceptive funding and access and increased the funding of abstinence only until marriage programs that have been proven ineffective, and dangerous for teens. In the 35 years since abortion was legalized in this country, the W. Bush regime has been the most hostile.
Yet despite a rough past, we are still standing and the future is hopeful. Today, we owe it to ourselves, and the generations of women and activists before us, to celebrate 35 years of women collectively fighting to uphold the legal right to abortion and for accessibility to quality healthcare in the name of self determination, autonomy, political and social equality.
