FROM MARGARET  – at 8th St. Driveway.

There were about 6 couples and parent/daughter duos coming across the 8th St. driveway.  Got only one to stop.  Hispanic mom and daughter.  The mom listened to me with apparent interest as I pointed out where the CPC was located and explained how we could help..  She took the brochure, then proceeded right into PP.

Only one other incident of note.  A county agent talked with Steve, the security guard, resulting in Steve relocating the large PP banner/flag the flanks the driveway.  He then came to me to explain that the Pill Reversal Sign across the street was in the right-of-way and needed to be taken down.  Property owner allowed us to move the sigh back a bit.

1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton Decisions Legalized Abortion in the U.S. for theFull Nine Months of Pregnancy Prior to 1967, abortion was prohibited in all 50 states except when the mother’s life was in danger. Between 1967 and 1973, 18 states added further exceptions, mostly to allow abortion in cases of rape and incest, or for certain limited medical reasons, or on demand (New York). In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court rendered two decisions, Roe v. Wade 1 and Doe v. Bolton 2 which, taken together, have allowed legal abortion on demand at any stage of pregnancy in all 50 states. The two original decisions established legal abortion as follows: In the first three months of pregnancy, no one can interfere with a woman’s decision to abort her child. After the first three months, but before the “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can enact laws to protect the health of the mother but cannot prohibit the abortion of the unborn child. After “viability” of the unborn child, an individual state can, if it chooses to do so, enact laws to protect the unborn child but abortion must be allowed if the life or “health” of the mother is at stake. The Supreme Court defined “health” as “the medical judgment that may be exercised in light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age –relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health.” 2 Consequently, the broad definition of “health” has made abortion legal up to the moment of birth.
