38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade

I'm a few days late on this one. I wanted to comment on this on Sunday, but I was trying to get a new parish website up and running and prepare a slideshow for RCIA, so I wasn't able to do much but save this quote:
"Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters."
