Thirty-Five Years Since Roe Vs. Wade

Yesterday marked the 35th Anniversary of Roe V. Wade, the landmark United States Supreme Court decision giving women the right to choose. Since Roe v. Wade, roughly 50 million women in the United States have exercised that right. While The Frisky hopes to post a personal take on this issue on our own in the future, we give mad props to the women at Jezebel and Nerve for sharing their stories. Additionally, The Huffington Post has a fabulous piece from Fear of Flying author Erica Jong about this important right — whether you choose to exercise it yourself or not. [CNN]
