A timeline of key abortion law found at the Pew Research Center’s article, a History of Key Abortion Rulings of the Supreme Court.  It is a really great cheat sheet.  Most importantly, it is a fantastic example of how important precedent is in the law.  One law is the building stone for another.  When you pull out one, many other become vulnerable.  When you place in a landmark stone, many other laws become possible.    #AbortionPolitics  #ReproductiveRights  #Feminism  #SupremeCourt
