Twenty years of freedom of choice

I'll never forget the day the Supreme Court struck down the abortion law, January 28, 1988. It was freezing cold. A group of pro-choice activists were standing in front of the clinic along with a mob of media waiting to hear the news from our comrades in Ottawa. They were supposed to call the clinic as soon as the decision came down and the clinic staff would let us know. We didn't have cell phones in those days.
