Planned Parenthood in Cleveland celebrates 35 Years of freedom on Roe v. Wade anniversary


On the anniversary of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade, Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio celebrates 35 years of freedom for women and families and vows to continue the fight to protect women’s health, increase access to affordable health care and birth control, and expand access to comprehensive sex ed. 


Roe v. Wade is a powerful reminder that deciding whether and when to become a parent is one of the most personal and important choices we make,” said Tara Broderick, CEO.   “As the nation’s leading provider and advocate of reproductive health care, Planned Parenthood knows firsthand that when women and couples have access to high-quality, affordable health care, they are able to plan healthy families.”


In Cleveland, Planned Parenthood joins other partners in the Freedom of Choice Coalition to present “Abortion in a Hostile Environment” with Louise Melling from the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at Anshe Chesed Fairmount Temple at 6:30 p.m.  The Freedom of Choice Cleveland Coalition is an alliance of Cleveland area organizations that proactively support safe and legal access to abortion and birth control for all women.  For more information call 216-961-8804 ext. 1209.


Every year, in communities nationwide, Planned Parenthood provides millions of women, men and teens with the information, education and services they need to protect their health, prevent unintended pregnancy, plan and space healthy, wanted pregnancies.


“The right to a safe and legal abortion is supported by the majority of Americans, but we also recognize that there is so much more our country can and should do to help women and couples prevent unintended pregnancies,” said Broderick. Nearly seventeen million women in this country need access to subsidized family planning services, but there is not enough funding to meet the need.  The CDC recently reported that teen birthrates are on the rise for the first time in 14 years.  We owe it to young people to provide health and sexuality education that enables them to make lifelong responsible choices about relationships, respect and sexuality.”


“Thirty-five years after Roe, the struggle to protect women’s health and safety continues, and it is time for Ohio legislators and the Bush administration to stop playing politics with public health,” added Broderick. “Planned Parenthood is calling on elected officials to work with us to expand access to reproductive health care and real sex education for women and families.”
