38th Anniversary Roe v. WadeJanuary 24, 2010 marks the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion. More than three dozen lawmakers addressed a Washington DC crowd during a rally to start the annual "." The lawmakers, buoyed by Republican gains in the House in November, called for the landmark court decision to be overturned and said they would work to restrict tax dollars for abortion. Just last week Republicans in the House introduced two bills to toughen restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortions. Rally speakers also called for an end to funding of Planned Parenthood and booed when told that President Barack Obama made a statement over the weekend supporting the Roe decision.
