Coming Up: Roe Anniversary and Blog for Choice Day!

In case you forgot to mark your calendar, we’re here to remind you that this Friday, January 22nd, 2010 is the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade!

This week we’re doing a few things to prepare for the occasion. First, we’re co-hosting a benefit with the DC Abortion Fund. It’s in Baltimore on Thursday evening (January 21st), so make sure you come out and join us! Learn more about the event on our website.

We’re also preparing to participate in NARAL Pro-Choice America’s 5th Annual Blog for Choice Day (this Friday) and you should too! It’s a day when hundreds of bloggers across the nation unite to give different perspectives on one pro-choice topic.

This year, NARAL’s Blog for Choice is asking the question, “What does Trust Women mean to you?” Trust Women has become a slogan to commemorate Dr. George Tiller, a courageous abortion provider who was murdered by an anti-choice extremist on May 31, 2009.

The sign-ups and details for the Blog for Choice Day are listed on www.BlogforChoice.com. We hope that you’ll check in with us Friday to see our post on the question, and we also want to hear from you! Comment to let us know if you’re a pro-choice Marylander who plans for Blog for Choice on Jan 22nd.
