Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court's landmark decision, changed the face of abortion rights in an instant. Roe marked the end of a long struggle for national legalization. Roe was a victory for doctors, lawyers and feminists who had been fighting for it. For the growing opposition to abortion rights, Roe was the beginning of a new fight: to protect the foetus, challenge the abortion providers, and finally overturn Roe. This is the story about how the opponents to abortion rights came together and built power. It also reveals the success of one of the most successful grassroots campaigns in the last century.
