NARAL Pro-Choice America Releases Report on Future of Roe at www.SUPREMECOURTATRISK.com
 
WASHINGTON - October 2 - As the Supreme Court reaches its traditional first Monday in October opening date, NARAL Pro-Choice America, the leading national advocate for personal privacy and a woman’s right to choose, today unveiled a new report warning of dire consequences for the right to choose if vacancies give President Bush the chance to remake the Court.

The report, including a detailed look at each current Justice’s position on the issue, is available at NARAL Pro-Choice America’s special "Supreme Court at Risk" Web site – www.supremecourtatrisk.com. Additional interactive content and media will be added to the site in the future.

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Kate Michelman said: "Next week, the Supreme Court begins a term that may end up being remembered as the calm before the storm. Today, a slim majority protects the Constitutional rights to personal privacy and reproductive freedom enshrined Roe v Wade. In the not-too-distant future, that may no longer be the case."

Michelman added that: "If we allow George W. Bush a second term in which to reshape this Court, we could very well lose the right to choose We cannot stand back and let that happen. We’re putting this information online as part of our ongoing effort to make sure America’s pro-choice majority understands just how high and how real the risks are."
