January 23, 1973

THE TIMES-UNION, Rochester, New York, Jan. 23, 1973 

* Abortion made legal (1st report)
* Roe v. Wade decision
* U.S. Supreme Court

Although the front page has report on the funeral plans for Lyndon B. Johnson, the most notable content is on page 11 which reports on the historic Roe vs. Wade abortion case.
The top of the page has: "Supreme Court: Abortion Battle Lines Drawn". The first paragraph reads: "Supporters of New York's permissive abortion law breathed a sigh of relief, while opponents shifted their fire to Washington yesterday after the U.S. Supreme Court voted 7 to 2 to limit states' rights to restrict abortions...".
Present are sections A and C with 34 (of 50) pages. Very nice condition.
