Thirty-seven years ago, Roe v. Wade assured American women more control over their bodies and lives. In honor of the landmark Supreme Court case, and continuing efforts to maintain the right to obtain an abortion, Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri invites supporters to throw down $37 (or more) to attend the Roe anniversary event Respect: Find Out What It Means to Me
. At the Gem Theater (1615 East 18th Street), speaker Alesha Doan, an assistant professor of political science at the University of Kansas, and others address the issues surrounding the nation's abortion debate. Proceeds benefit Planned Parenthood. Students get in for $17, and general admission is $37. For the charity-minded, donation packages go all the way up to $1,370. See ppkm.org/index.asp
