Rising Support for Abortion Rights Despite Anti-Choice Activism and State Sabotage of the ability to exercise those rights. The state of abortion rights, 40 years later ? MSNBC Roe v Wade Roe v. Wade I find it interesting that no one left or right has commemorated this anniversary. One would think the pretend libertarians would be celebrating the right of the individual to assert dominion over her own body... but they don't. the real libertarians do, though. one might also wonder where the pretend constitutionalists are when it comes to defending our right of privacy from government intrusion into our lives. they are no where to be found. and still the majority of us support the right of a woman to be free of government interference during the first trimester of a pregnancy. abortion should be safe, readily available and infrequently needed.
