Roe Vs. Wade 40th Anniversary Today

Protest march expected in Washington D.C.


WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 (UPI) — The nation marks the 40th anniversary Tuesday of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling, Roe vs. Wade, which recognized a woman's right to an abortion.

The decision in a case out of Texas still evokes strong emotions from opponents and supporters. The annual March for Life, in which tens of thousands of abortion opponents march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court, is scheduled for Friday.
