WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama is marking the 39th
anniversary of the Supreme Court's landmark Roe v. Wade decision by saying that the ruling was more than just about establishing a woman's right to an abortion.
Obama says in a statement that the court's decision also makes clear that the government "should not intrude on private family matters."
The president says he's committed to protecting a woman's right to choose and "this fundamental constitutional right."
