dc.description.abstract In a nation where dreams are within reach, it is easy to take things for granted. Not excluded from such an abuse are the rights that the U.S. Courts uphold in Constitutional Law. The particular right to decide whether or not to have an abortion is currently in a precarious position. Over the years, the original decision of Roe v. Wade has been amended multiple times, with each revision pulling the reigns in on reproductive freedom. With existing conditions, this entitlement is in jeopardy of revocation. With the re-election of President Bush and the impending Supreme Court Justice changes, coupled with landmark decisions being made about criminal law regarding unborn children, many changes may be made in the next few years. No matter what one's personal beliefs are it is important to be informed on the issue in order to make educated decisions and know where to take action. Social workers have a special interest in this duty. As advocates for clients, their connection to the needs of others compels them to work much harder to keep up on anything that may endanger the freedoms clients rely upon. It is a tough feat, but education is the first step towards effective action. AcknowledgementsI would like to greatly thank Judy Gray. A highly intelligent and compassionate woman, I came to her first with entreaties to be my advisor. Having been her student last semester, I knew she would provide me with just enough guidance and encouragement to complete this thesis effectively. And while I may not have been the perfect thesis student, she has been ever patient with me and deserves much more reward than the praise a tiny glib on paper could provide to her. Thanks from the bottom of my heart, Judy!
