Chicago Abortion Fund Rally for Roe

Thursday was the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the Chicago Abortion Fund & friends rallied at Federal Plaza.

We not only rallied to celebrate Roe, but we also rallied to bring attention to the Hyde amendment and the injustice it brings to poor women around the country.

Medill came out and covered the event and there is a nice photo gallery online! I'm in the last photo digging thru my purse for my Treo because I was hoping that President Obama would lift the global gag rule and then we could celebrate! Alas, despite what the anti's wanted us to think, he didn't lift the ban until Friday. A two-day celebration isn't a bad thing thou.
