HJR 635 designates January 22, 2018, as the “Day of Hope and Healing” in Tennessee for “those affected by abortion and the Roe v. Wade decision.”
The date marks the 45th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court case which affirmed a pregnant person’s right to an abortion prior to the viability of a fetus.
The resolution incorrectly states that it is the 35th anniversary of Roe v Wade.
