Today is a pretty big deal.

Today marks 40 years since January 22, 1973, the day the Supreme Court ruled in the Roe v. Wade case, giving women in the U.S. the right to chose a safe, legal abortion.

Today is also the eighth annual Blog for Choice Day, sponsored by NARAL Pro-Choice America, which calls on activists across the Internet to share their personal stories about why they’re pro-choice.

And today NARAL Pro-Choice South Dakota is launching (or rather, re-launching) a blogging effort that we hope will create a safe space to share stories about choice, information about reproductive health and rights, and a place to offer encouragement to those of us who are still fighting for reproductive justice.

See? We told you today was a pretty big deal.
