43rd Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Today, as we mark the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we recognize the importance of this historical decision and the sad reality that the GOP is trying to deny women the rights guaranteed by this case. We will continue to represent the majority of American Jewry, 93 percent, who are overwhelming pro-choice as we support providers of women’s health, like Planned Parenthood, and work to protect women’s access to safe and affordable health care. 

We echo the president’s sentiment that we must “redouble our commitment to protecting these constitutional rights, including protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her right to reproductive freedom from efforts to undermine or overturn them.”
