The recent decision of the Supreme Court in Dobbs V. Jackson Women’s Health Organization — the ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade — violates our inherent right to bodily autonomy. As a 20-year-old woman, this new reality is completely terrifying.

Despite this tragic change in federal policy, Connecticut has been at the forefront of this issue, ensuring abortion is still legal and supported by the state.
