In a case that attracted national attention, Philadelphia inner-city abortion provider Kermit B. Gosnell was found guilty of first-degree murder Monday in the deaths of three born-alive babies by "snipping" their spines.
Forty years ago, a poor, anonymous, pregnant woman called "Jane Roe" stepped forward to attack a Texas state law banning abortion. She and her attorneys succeeded beyond their wildest imaginations.
"When states go to extreme lengths to restrict abortion, unscrupulous providers like Gosnell are often a woman's last resort," he said. "This is why we work every day to protect the constitutional rights of women to access legal and safe abortion care regardless of income and geography."
"As a new generation of young people who support a woman's right to control her body and her life joins our ranks, the labels we use matter less," wrote Tarek Rizk, the group's communications director.
