On Thursday, January 22, at 9:15am on the steps of City Hall, New York City Council Member Laurie A. Cumbo, joined by elected officials and womens rights advocates will lead a rally in commemoration of the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Cumbo, chair of the Committee on Womens Issues, is marking the monumental Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion within the United States and in response to recent attempts to restrict reproductive rights.
