COURT DECISION DECIDED ON THIS DAY

US Supreme Court release report on investigation into Roe vs Wade leak ...


Roe v. Wade
, the landmark Supreme Court decision that
established a woman’s legal right to an abortion, was
decided on January 22, 1973. The Court ruled, in a 7-2
decision, that a woman’s right to choose an abortion
was protected by the privacy rights guaranteed by the
Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The
legal precedent for the decision was rooted in the 1965
case of Griswold v. Connecticut, which established the
right to privacy involving medical procedures.

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN CABINET MEMBER

Remembering HUD’s Robert C Weaver, First Black Presidential Cabinet Member – The pink report news
Robert Clifton Weaver (December 29, 1907 – July 17, 1997)

On January 13, 1966, President Lyndon B. Johnson appointed
the first African American cabinet member, making Robert C.
Weaver (above) head of the Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD), the agency that develops and implements
national housing policy and enforces fair housing laws.

In keeping with his vision for a Great Society, Johnson sought
to improve race relations and eliminate urban blight. As many
of the country’s African Americans lived in run-down inner-city
areas, appointing Weaver was an attempt to show his African
American constituency that he meant business on both counts.
