#304: A Landmark Legal Listen 🎧
Learn about how this supremely important ruling came about.
On January 22, 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a 7–2 decision in favor of "Jane Roe" (Norma McCorvey) holding that women in the United States had a fundamental right to choose whether to have abortions without excessive government restriction.
The microcosm of events that led to this defining moment in American history is as important as the ruling itself and the focus of one of the most unique podcasts we’ve listened to this year – Supreme: The Battle for Roe.
On one end is Sarah Weddington, Texas attorney and advocate for women's rights and reproductive health. On the other end is Harry Blackmun, the soon-to-be appointee of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Before Roe V. Wade, Sarah Weddington had never worked on a contested case or even been inside a courtroom. Harry Blackmun had never authored a major opinion. They were both new, untested, and the least likely vehicles for the abortion controversy you can imagine.
A series of defining individual moments for both Weddington and Blackburn put them both on a collision course for the U.S. Supreme Court and together, they create one of the most defining moments of the century.
