Georgia NAACP observes 50th Anniversary of ROE v. WADE with push for Reproductive Rights in Georgia
On a rainy Sunday afternoon, the Georgia NAACP joined Reproductive Freedom advocacy groups at the Georgia State Capitol. Fifty years after the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade and in the wake of the Dobbs v. Jackson decision that overturned it, the Georgia NAACP reaffirmed its commitment to protecting Black Women's rights and the rights of women of color.
President Gerald Griggs stated that "the protection of bodily autonomy is the essence of freedom and civil rights. We at the Georgia NAACP call on lawmakers to do more to protect Women's rights in Georgia. The US Supreme Court may have struck down Roe v. Wade, but the Georgia Constitution protects life, liberty, and property in this State."
