PEMA LEVY 2:06 PM EST, TUESDAY JANUARY 22, 2013

President Obama called for renewed dedication to "supporting women and families in the choices they make" in a statement issued Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade.

Wade, we reaffirm its historic commitment to protect the health and reproductive freedom of women across this country and stand by its guiding principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters, and women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care.

On this anniversary, we recommit ourselves to supporting women and families in the choices they make and redouble our efforts to promote safe and healthy communities.
