At Roe v Wade anniversary, Planned Parenthood considers big changes possible in abortion rights
The 49th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe vs Wade arrived last week (January 22nd), with a little more baggage than usual.
Abortion rights opponents observed the date with a bit more hope than in the past; the current Supreme Court appears poised to allow states much greater leeway in restricting abortion. That leaves people who support abortion rights wondering and planning what to do if the situation changes that markedly.
Oregon has some of the most liberal abortion laws in the country, unlikely to change anytime soon. Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon are keeping an eye on developments, as are clinics and referral centers of Planned Parenthood of Southwestern Oregon.
