39th anniversary of landmark Roe v. Wade decision

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Sunday marks the 39th anniversary of the landmark Roe versus Wade ruling on a woman's right to choose.

Across the country, thousands of demonstrators hit the streets both in support of the law and against it.

Here in San Diego, a group of feminists gathered at the Civic Center Plaza downtown.

"It's our position that abortion is a medical procedure that should be available to all women without restriction. It should be funded and abortion is a part of comprehensive health care. And health care should be a right, not a privilege," demonstrator Adriane Bracciale said.

The 1973 ruling federally legalized a woman's right to have an abortion per the 14th Amendment of the Constitution.
