Great Day

This picture shows the reaction to Barack Obama taking the oath of office today. We gathered at Roy Soto and Rita Longino's house in Corrales.

This young lady is Franchesca Bardacke, of the Students for Reproductive Justice at UNM. Yes, she is Paul Bardacke's daughter. We have known her since she was a baby. She did an interview with Channel 7 who showed up to watch us watch the speech.

This is Bobbi with Sarah Weddington of Austin, Texas. Sarah was a young lawyer in the 1970's. She argued and won the Roe v. Wade case in front of the Supreme Court. That of course is the case that won women the right to control their own bodies, rather than the religious fundamentalists.
