41 Years to Go?

I wonder if 41 years from now, as I venture into old age, if today will mark the 82nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the supreme court decision legalizing abortion through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy in the United States. I wonder if the many marches will continue in 2055. Will hope […]
