Rowe versus Wade Remembered
Despite the fight, one mid-missouri group celebrated the controversial anniversary.Reverend Rebecca Turner turned some heads to talk about a topic that's been hot for 33 years...Roe versus Wade...The Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion.
People like turner cheered the ruling on it's anniversary.They say too many people are scared to talk about it.
"Abortion is not a pretty subject.People don't like to talk about it. They don't like the subject to come up at dinner parties or casual conversations.It's uncomfortable," said Rev. Turner.
But today the conversation was easy. The MU Chapter of Spiritual Youth for Reproductive Freedom brought abortion to life with a movie, special guests and discussion.
"Women's stories are the most important part of the whole discussion about Roe because it's not just a political argument... It's about the real lives of women," said Rev. Turner.
Still....some say this anniversary should be about finding a way around abortion.
"Raising the minimum wage is the most obvious way because you find that most people who have abortions do it because they can't afford and most of them are low income," said Kristi Parker.
"Women need real options," said Rev. Turner.
And chances are that debate won't end soon.Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-missouri co-sponsored today's event.
