Hey, I just got this email and I thought some of you might be interested in this:

"January 22nd marks the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that protected a woman's right to a legal abortion in America.

Join Amplify's Roe V Wade Blogathon - write a blog about the right to choose!

Since then, social conservatives have tried to chip away at the right to choose, especially where young women are concerned. 43 states still restrict young women's access to abortion by mandating parental notice or consent. But with a new administration comes new hope that some of the damaging policies put in place may be reversed. Now more than ever it is important for you to get involved in the fight for safe and legal abortion.

Starting today here at Amplify, we are commemorating the Anniversary with a Roe v. Wade "Blog-a-thon". January 21-27, we are calling on all of you to blog here on Amplify as a part of the global movement of young people working for choice. Share your stories about what the right to a legal and safe abortion means to you and to women around the world, and share ideas for how we can preserve our right to choose.

If you're not registered, be sure to take a few seconds to join Amplify, and then start blogging away!"

Here's the website to join, log in, and blog: http://www.amplifyyourvoice.org/main.cfm?s=amplify
