Ignore your rights...and they'll go away

In 1971, Sarah Weddington, along with Linda Coffee, argued the winning side of the landmark case Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion in the United States. Admist the backdrop of a US Supreme Court that is currently divided on the issue of abortion, Sarah recognizes and fears that Roe vs. Wade could be easily overturned. According to the Vancouver Sun, she always wonders whether younger women have any idea of what life was like back "then" and feels there is still a need for the pro-choice movement and the protection of women's rights. Indeed, I'm sure we all agree. Come listen to Sarah share her experience and insight at the Orpheum Theatre tonight!

My name is Tia and I am an editor at Opposing Views. I came across your site, liked what I read, and wanted to introduce us because we both write about political issues.
Opposingviews.com is a debate site where experts go head-to-head on a variety of topics. With Election Day approaching, our experts are discussing some of the most interesting and high-profile ballot initiatives from across the U.S. I encourage you to check out those of interest:
I believe you and your visitors will appreciate these debates and might want to weigh in with votes or comments. If you like our site, I would appreciate it if you blog about us or give us a link to the debates. You can create a profile page giving readers information and links to your site. Or, if it is easier, I can do this for you. In the near future we’ll add a blogosphere section to each debate so we can directly feature outside blogs like yours.
Thanks for the time and consideration. Let me know if you have any questions or recommendations for experts or debates.
