What Has 40 Years of Abortion Done to America? Some of the top pro-life leaders plan to address this question before Americans solemnly mark the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision that resulted in virtually unlimited abortion.

On December 4, 2012, an impressive and diverse group of experts and witnesses with personal experience of abortion will present a three hour media briefing on the topic: “What Has 40 Years of Abortion Done to America?”

The purpose is to provide access to a broad spectrum of experts, including women hurt by abortion, for news media preparing stories regarding the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton on January 22, 2013.

The presenters will make their statements available to be used in any format, without embargo.   Presenters will provide evidence, documentation and background material that will assist reporters in preparing thoughtful pieces that present both sides of the issue of legalized abortion.

The event will take place at National Press Club in Washington, D.C. December 4, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
