This year marks NARAL Pro-Choice Connecticut’s 40th anniversary as an advocate for reproductive freedom here in the Nutmeg State. We are proud of our state’s strong history of protecting reproductive freedom, including being one of a handful of states to have codified Roe v. Wade in our state statutes to recognize the right of an individual to access abortion.
But increased attacks on reproductive freedom at the national level have emboldened the anti-choice movement here in Connecticut. It is more important now more than ever that we have a state legislature than is bold and proactive in ensuring abortion access and reproductive rights for all of us in Connecticut. This scorecard grades legislators on many factors of their work over a two-year period.
