MEMPHIS, TN – Planned Parenthood Greater Memphis Region is one of a coalition of more than forty Mid-South organizations, individuals and churches that have teamed up to host a documentary screening and panel discussion on the 40th anniversary of the U. S. Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal for women in across the country.
