The month of January is important for many reasons however, the passing of women’s right to choose to have an abortion in the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade was a historic event to happen in the long journey of women’s rights movement. Moreover, women still have to fight every day for this right. Therefore, this is why organizations like the Women’s Information Network have developed. I attended a Women’s Information Network event the week before the Roe v. Wade candle light vigil on the Supreme Court steps. I enjoyed going to this Women’s Information Network event, I learned a lot about how many states are making law that hinder the right for a women to receive and abortion. Therefore, this is why women have to stand up and continue to fight for their rights so they do not get them taken away!
