Demonstrators, including Dawn Merritt, gather outside the Connecticut State Supreme Court on May 03, 2022, in response to a leaked draft opinion from the United States Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade. “The Supreme Court is not impartial anymore,” said Merritt, “It seems like our justice system has been preyed upon.”

This month marks one year since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Since then, we’ve seen states across the country roll back abortion access. But here in Connecticut, the opposite has been true.

From protections for providers to a “safe harbor fund,” lawmakers have proposed different ways to expand abortion access in the state this year. This hour, we’ll get the latest on that and how Connecticut compares to other states. Plus, we get a preview of the final day of this legislative session.
