TOP STORIES

——————————-

SUPREME-COURT-ABORTION-SENATE — The end of Roe v. Wade started in the Senate. It was the Senate Republican partnership with President Donald Trump to confirm conservative judges, and transform the federal judiciary, that paved the way for the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling to overturn the constitutional right to abortion. By Congressional Correspondent Lisa Mascaro. SENT: 1,090 words, photos.

SUPREME COURT ABORTION-WOMEN — Reproductive freedom was one of the key goals of the feminism of the 1960s and 1970s. The women who fought for those rights recall an astonishing decade of progress from about 1963 to 1973. It included the right to equal pay, the right to use birth control, Title IX in 1972, and then Roe v. Wade, guaranteeing a right to abortion. Now they are not only shocked at the rollback of that right, but worried that if a right so central to the overall fight for women’s equality can be revoked, what does this mean for the progress women have made in public life in the intervening 50 years? By National Writer Jocelyn Noveck. SENT: 1,150 words, photos.
