“Abortion is a matter of survival for women”

January 22nd, 2010 by Elizabeth Kissling

It was 37 years ago today that the U.S. Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, in which the Court held that a woman’s right to an abortion fell within the right to privacy protected by the Fourteenth Amendment.

In commemoration of that decision and women’s right to autonomy over personal reproductive decisions, I’m posting some of the newly released video of the late Dr. George Tiller talking about why he performed abortions.

Thank you, Dr. Tiller, for trusting women.
