Sarah Weddington

Last night I got to be in the same room with a little piece of history. That "history" was Sarah Weddington the lawyer who argued the side of Roe in the United States Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade and was also the youngest person at that time to argue before the SC. While I am still riding on the excitement of getting to see this woman and haven't had any thoughts on the evening, this will be a short entry. 

Sarah Weddington spoke at the Planned Parenthood Center in Stapeleton yesterday after having spoken at other places around town in celebration of the 36th anniversary of the victory of Roe vs. Wade back in 1973. The impact that that event had on our nation's growth and the move forward that that gives to many different human rights issues is unbelievable. Sarah spoke on her experiences and how that has enabled her to continue to help women's rights movements since and also commented on further work to make sure that we as Americans have the freedom to make our own choices. 

Further thoughts on this even as well as Roe vs. Wade to come later. I'm still not awake. Lol
