In 1973 – on January 22 – the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its Roe vs. Wade decision, legalizing abortion in the U.S.

I was 25 years old. How old were you? Were you born yet? Do you know the stories?

And remember, the path to Roe vs. Wade made a major, critically important stop in Connecticut, with Griswold vs. Connecticut, which was decided June 7, 1965.

History is important for today and the future.
