1973: The Supreme Court of the United States delivers its decision in Roe v. Wade, declaring on a 7-2 vote that abortion is a fundamental right under the United States Constitution, thereby subjecting all laws attempting to restrict it to the standard of strict scrutiny. Roe v. Wade prompted a national debate that continues today.
