34th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma is sponsoring Sarah Weddington’s return to Oklahoma City to help commemorate the 34th anniversary of Roe v. Wade on Thursday, January 18th at 7:30 p.m. at Stage Center, 400 West Sheridan, in downtown Oklahoma City. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the cost is $20.

On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in Roe v. Wade, that the constitutional right to privacy “is broad enough to encompass a woman’s decision whether or not to terminate her pregnancy.” Roe is the case that legalized abortion nationwide, making abortion services safer and more accessible to women throughout the country. The then 27-year-old attorney Sarah Weddington argued the winning side of Roe v. Wade, becoming the youngest attorney in history to win a Supreme Court case.
