Vol.62/No.2 January 19, 1998
`For A Woman's Right To Choose'
Shouting, "Not the church, not the state, women must decide
their fate," 75 people marched from Boston City Hall to the
State Capitol on the third anniversary of shootings at two
abortion clinics. On Dec. 30, 1994, two clinic workers were
killed and five others were wounded by antiabortion thug John
Salvi. At the rally Cheryl Garrity, president of
Massachusetts National Organization for Women, pointed to the
importance of January 22 - the 25th anniversary of the Supreme
Court decision that legalized abortion. Andrea Lee from the
Northeast Young Feminist Summit Organizing Committee urged
participation in the February 27 - March 1 conference in
Boston. A regional planning meeting for all those who want to
help organize the summit will be held January 24 in Boston.
