Connecticut state officials mark 51st anniversary of Roe v. Wade
Connecticut state officials celebrated the 51st anniversary of the Roe v. Wade landmark decision in Hartford on Monday.
The ruling protected constitutional access to abortion and other reproductive health care rights, until the case was overturned by the Supreme Court in 2022.
Remarks from Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz echoed frustrations from advocates of Roe v. Wade.
“To see the last five decades of progress in women’s equality further chipped away is incredibly disappointing and downright infuriating,” said Bysiewicz.
While abortion is safe, legal and protected in Connecticut, it remains restricted or banned in 21 states.
