    VAN HOLLEN of maryland in the house of representatives Friday, January 25, 2013 Mr. VAN HOLLEN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. On January 22, 1973, the Supreme Court recognized a woman's right to privacy and protected her freedom to make her own reproductive decisions. With the support of a majority of Americans, my colleagues and I will continue to defend this right and oppose efforts to interfere in a decision between a woman, her family, and her doctor. Let's work together to ensure quality, affordable health care, reduce unplanned pregnancies, and expand assistance to pregnant women and options for adoption.
